Current info indicates heating oil prices will increase 31% this winter, while natural gas prices will increase 71%.. How will you handle that dramatic increase? My home - which will go up for sale sometime soon - is heated with oil.. Prior to all of the remodeling - with old drafty windows, "settled" insulation, etc. - it really wasn't all that expensive to heat - and now that it's been totally done over (new windows and doors, new insulation, etc.) the new owners will probably get by with only a tank and a half - if that - for the entire winter.. My DD's house is heated with natural gas though and after seeing their heating bills from last winter, I am STRONGLY encouraging them to get on the budget plan ASAP.. With a 71% increase for natural gas, I shudder to think what those heat bills will be this year.... What do you plan to do in order to ease your winter heat bills?
