However, heating oil prices have dropped from around $3.50 per gallon last year to $2.50 this year. A representative of the Connecticut Energy Marketers Association called it “blatantly deceptive.” When a reporter called SCG about the ad, the company said it “reviewed recent heating oil prices” and took down the ad.
