Oil refineries separate crude oil into many useful refined products. The proportion of each product produced depends on the regional demand of the market. There can also be seasonal differences in demand for heating fuel versus transportation fuel within a given market. This section deals with heating oil and unleaded gasoline which are the two most important refined oil products. Futures contracts on the regulated commodity exchanges are a way to get positioned to trade refined energies.
