Home heating oil was unchanged at $3.1459 per gallon. Reformulated blendstock gasoline shed 4 cents to $3.2963 per gallon.

Natural gas prices added 4 cents to $2.111 per million British thermal units.

At the pump, the national average price of unleaded gasoline dropped slightly to $3.927 per gallon from Sunday's $3.929, AAA said.
