Home Heating Costs

Hard to think about this when just getting over 100 degree temps...Anybody been pricing fuel yet? I got a mailer for lp pre-buy today....1.49/gallon and have to prebuy by August 31. It was 1.09/gallon last year....

Re: Home Heating Costs

We do have some heating costs in Phoenix . . . just not enough to actually bother to think about them.

Re: Home Heating Costs

Nat gas was, what, $0.14 at it's peak last fall, but back to $0.06 or so now. Of course, my summer gas bill, for hot water only, has been running about $16.

Futures prices for nat gas this winter (Dec through Mar) are around $11 per MMBTU. That's before any more hot weather, hurricanes, etc.

Wrong units...*

Looking at my recent gas and electric bills, I see that gas is $9.39/MCF. I used 0.6MCF last month. Electric is $0.148/KWH; used 1879 last month.

Highest gas bill this year was $96 in Jan.

Re: Home Heating Costs

You guys! You know...its when it drops down into the 70's or maybe...bbbbrrrrrrrr...the 60's and you turn on that old rusty seldom used thing called a 'furnace' and it makes the house a little warmer? And the utility company charges you an extra ten dollars that month?

Thats it! Heating costs!
