White Plains, NY — One of the biggest seasonal expenses that Westchester families face is the cost of heating their homes. In recent years, the Westchester County Board of Legislators came up with a tool to help Westchester families get the best price available – the Oil Prices Tracker.

“Anything we can do to provide Westchester residents a resource that could lead to savings for homeowners is a no-brainer,” said Chairman Benjamin Boykin II (D-White Plains, Harrison, Scarsdale).  “Numerous constituents have already reached out to my office asking for the Oil Prices Tracker to continue.  I agree with them that this is a great tool and I’m happy to start it up again for the 2018 fall/winter season.”

The Oil Prices Tracker is posted on the legislature’s web page at Prices will be updated weekly. 

“The Oil Prices Tracker, started in 2016 by then Chairman Michael Kaplowitz, is a survey of home heating oil companies’ price per gallon.  Although it will only be updated once a week, there will be links to most of the providers listed so visitors can click through to each provider’s website for a daily price,” Chairman Boykin continued.

The Oil Prices Tracker is for informational purposes, and is intended to provide consumers with choices and the opportunity to “price shop” among the heating oil providers in their area.

The Tracker is a voluntary program. Only those companies wishing to participate and forwarding pricing on a weekly basis are included.  As prices may change daily, consumers are encouraged to contact providers for current pricing.

The Oil Prices Tracker is currently up and running.  Visit for pricing as of today.
