About Fuel Oil. Fuel Oil is an organic compound, a mixture of hydrocarbons. It is a highly viscous liquid, with yellowish to black color, insoluble in water and most organic solvents. Fuel oil is a general classification of petroleum fraction (obtained either as a distillate or as a residue) that is used in an engine for power generation or is burned in a furnace for heat generation. For this matter, a wide variety of compounds can be categorized as fuel oil, diesel is one of those. It is composed mainly of long-chain alkanes, aromatics and cycloalkanes. Fuel oil can be categorized into 6 types, from number 1 through 6. The heavier fuel oils (4-6) are largely byproducts of the refining process, so their specification can vary greatly. Being a byproduct does not equate to having few or no uses; all types of fuel oil indeed are produced and employed in large quantities worldwide, for different uses.

Lighter fuel oils can be transported via pipelines. Inland it is carried by rail cars and trucks. Worldwide fuel oil is shipped by fleets of oil tankers. Therefore, the cost of transportation can vary depending on the distance and other logistical factors. In addition, the price of fuel oil is also influenced by a range of factors, including the global demand for crude oil, refinery production capacity, and environmental regulations.</p><p>In this context, having access to reliable price data is crucial in a wide range of situations, such as studies on logistics costs, development of feasibility studies, screening and assessing investment options.</p>
