Check Live Pricing in Maine
As the northernmost state in the continental United States, Maine is notorious for its remote landscapes and long winters. According to estimates by the U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA), fuel oil is used to heat more than 70% of homes in Maine, making it the most petroleum dependent state in the country when it comes to heating. Despite this, the region suffers from perennially high home heating oil prices, in part because of the difficulty in arranging service to rural residents.
We Proudly Serve Areas of Maine
Smart Touch Energy offers competitive heating oil prices to residents in The Pine Tree State:
- Northern: The remoteness and scenic beauty of the northern part of the state attract hardy, independent folks who don't mind the extreme cold. While some suppliers may choose not to serve this area due to its sparse population and delivery challenges, Smart Touch Energy is proud to meet residents' unique heating oil requirements. Our One-Time Delivery Service is a popular choice in the region. We'll ensure your tank is full so you can make it through those frigid winter months.
- Southern: While residents of southern Maine experience slightly "warmer" conditions than their northern counterparts, they still deal with extreme cold. The average low January temperature in Portland, for example, is a bone-chilling 13 degrees Fahrenheit. With our reliable service and affordable Maine oil prices, Smart Touch Energy can make the cold temperatures more tolerable.
- Eastern: Do you live in or near one of the picturesque coastal towns like Bar Harbor, Kennebunkport, or Camden that make eastern Maine such a popular tourist destination? While the region is inviting in summer, the cold winter weather poses challenges for year-round residents like you. Smart Touch Energy eases the burden with cost-efficient heating oil prices and dependable delivery service. We'll help you stay warm and comfortable while making your home heating costs more manageable.
- Western: Whether you live near the New Hampshire state line or a stone's throw from the Canadian border, you can't risk running out of oil in wintertime. Take comfort in knowing that Smart Touch Energy is available to keep your tank full throughout the season. You'll be able to sit back and relax and watch the snow — and you won't have to worry that you're paying too much for your heating oil.

Maine's Choice for Low Oil Prices
Smart Touch Energy provides the best oil prices in Maine. We understand the factors that affect Maine oil prices, and we plan accordingly to keep our rates down. These factors include:
- Administrative and delivery fees: These charges account for a large portion of most heating bills. At Smart Touch Energy, we keep these charges to a minimum, thanks to our many efficient processes. With our extensive network of local suppliers, we have easier access to customers, which allows us to provide delivery for less. And with our online ordering and billing, streamlined operations and reduced waste, we significantly reduce our administrative costs.
- Seasonal demand: Oil is a commodity, so the more people who want it, the more expensive it gets. When cold weather hits, demand and prices rise. Smart Touch Energy has the resources to buy and store large amounts of oil, so we buy in bulk when prices are low to create a hedge against seasonal price spikes.
- International events: Events overseas do not have as much of an effect on heating oil prices in Maine as many people think. Most oil is produced domestically, so international fluctuations are relatively negligible to Maine oil prices.
Our effective oil distribution strategies allow us to offer prices up to $0.40 per unit less than the average rates reported by the U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA). Many customers who sign with us save as much as $200 a year on their heating bills.
