Strange. I just bought 400 gals of LP for $.89/gal.
Gotta love it when its 32° outside and 80° inside with half the windows in the house opened up after a 7 hour overnight fire.......and it ain't costing me a dime........where's the "love it" button?
"It's two different worlds. For most families this is still going to be an affordable year, except for those who use oil heat," said Mark Wolfe, executive director of the National Energy Assistance Director's Association. "For them, it's going to be very difficult."
Article goes on to state 6% of American homes are using oil.... That seems absurdly low, maybe 'cause I'm in the Northeast?

"With winter coming on and temperatures dropping, U.S. homeowners will see their heating bills rise in the coming months."
Uh, Really? This is your lead? Really?
Somebody just shoot me.
Anybody remember the "Hippie Dippy Weatherman"?
I'll tell you what, when the wife and I ride snowmobiles all day and come home and warm ourselves in front of the fire, have a few adult beverages and well you can guess the rest.......I don't need a calculator to say what that's worth!
This study was probably financed by some government grant too.
In other news, with fall upon us, many trees have begun changing color and loosing their leaves.
And as the Saginaw News once reported, the trees are approaching their peak colors with maples and pines at peak color now.
And, of course, next May they can report that temperatures will be climbing in the next couple of months....
Wowser! We are well over 4 times that price.
Just heard on the news this morning that Nat gas prices are expected to rise 20% in the very near future........conveniently right in time for winter........
Around here the NG prices are holding steady or dropping slightly.
Maybe I should load my tank on the trailer and make a trip to G.B. Would be cheaper than buying from my Propane guys!
Sounds good. Got some cold horse piss in the fridge waiting for ya!
Heres the weather
Tonight it will be getting dark ,continued dark and getting lighter in the morning.
Its 50 Deg at the airport but who the hell lives at the airport.
My wood prices may DOUBLE this year. I pay ZERO now so what would that be DOUBLE ZERO?
I predict that heating cost will go down this summer.
My calculations might be off. Someone double check my math.
I predict my oil tank will remain empty.
Just paid $2.33 gal for propane in WV for 300 gal.
Well, I guess it was 2 months ago.
My last delivery was $3.80/gallon. They have offered a 5% discount though.
Funny thing about the propane company we use...No matter when you call and ewhoever you talk to, they give a different price/discount/special every time! Never less than three times what Smoke pays though!
