Wordpress Site Goes to Localhost Rather Than Site URL

On the web site albans-oil.net, I have a pull down menu that has three selections: Home, Order Alban's Oil, and Navigation. When I select Order Alban's Oil, the site navigates to http://albans-oil.net/order-albans-oil. However, when I am on the order page and select Home from the Menu, rather than redirecting to http://albans-oil.net (or, possibly, albans-oil.net/home), the site tries to redirect to localhost and I get an error message saying my browser could not redirect to localhost. The redirection goes as it should when I select Navigation from the pull down menu. How do I fix the site so that, instead of redirecting to localhost when I select Home from pulldown on http://albans-oil.net/order-albans-oil, it redirects to albans-oil.net or albans-oil.net/home? Thanks for your help!

Problem solved! I just went into the administrative section of the web site and looked at Appearance->Menus, then looked at the Menu structure. When I click on the pull down next to the Home option in Menu structure, the URL is listed as http://localhost. I changed the URL to http://albans-oil.net and all is well. Please disregard the above.
