Higher Energy Prices May Lead To Higher Heating Costs This Winter

Winter is still several months away, but Kentucky’s Public Service Commission is already warning people: be prepared for higher heating costs!

The P.S.C. says you'll likely pay more to heat your home this winter than in the last couple of years. That's because of higher energy prices particularly for natural gas.

The P.S.C. recommends you start taking steps soon to weatherize your home for the winter months and to sign up for budget billing plans.

    Natural gas just has to jump on the band wagon, doesn't it!? Natural gas is one abundant natural resource we have and because foreign oil is outlandisly high, the owners and operators of domestic natural gas just can't stand not getting in on the wind fall! Everywhere you drive through the countryside, the stench of natural gas fills the air. Oh yea! They better pump up their prices too!

    natural gas prices are a rip off i use to work for a gas servicing company and heard many times about being able to get natural gas any where they drilled in kentucky.so why do they charge so much for it because they can and people are dumb enough to let them.

    And, what exactly are we supposed to do to be 'prepared' for the higher costs? We're already squeezing a dollar until it squeals! Our thermastat stays at 68 degrees in the day and 65 degrees at night during the winter months.
