‘Heating Bills Expected to Rise’

By October 13, 2005Energy

As we’ve predicted, that’s the headline today, running almost everywhere. The Energy Information Administration came out with its most recent data yesterday. Among the ashes:

— That heating bills for all fuel types will cost Americans about one-third more this winter on average, assuming typical weather;

— A colder-than-normal winter could lift energy prices nearly 50 percent;

— The three-quarters of Americans who use natural gas to heat their homes could see even greater increases — 47.6% if a normal winter and 66% if there’s a colder winter;

Here’s a link to one story on this topic. Don’t forget to thank an environmentalist for 30 years of moratoria on new energy sources. And click here to send a letter to your Member of Congress.
