AUGUSTA — The Maine Governor’s Energy Office says heating prices are falling slightly in Maine as residents prepare for the upcoming heating season.

The office says the average price for heating oil slipped 2 cents from a month ago to $1.87 per gallon. Kerosene prices have also gone down 1 cent to $2.41 and propane prices have fallen 2 cents to $2.15 per gallon.

The office says the lower prices reflect the fact that a price rally in crude oil markets that took place over the last several months has faltered.

The prices reflect an Aug. 22 survey.
