Utility Bills -- OUCH!!!

Everyone has probably heard by now that we consumers are going to get hit hard with high heating bills this winter. It's already happening. My current natural gas bill is more than twice as much as the one for the previous month's billing cycle. :shock: And I live in the South. As for you folks up North, well, what can I say? Get ready to pay, pay, pay for warmth!!!

Post your heating bill horror stories here.

Ours has not doubled, it is actually about the same. We keep the heat around 67-68 when in the house and 64-65 when away. Keeping the cycles down and making sure you have no drafts from windows and doors really helps.

heh, ours has doubled, and we keep it at 68. We are renting an older house and the windows don't quite seal as well as they used to. Looks like I might be making a field trip to home depot for some weatherstripping

Our windows leak air like nuts, which sucks. Our natural gas bills since moving into this place in sept have been about $50... we'll see how it is this month now that winter is here though.
