    up here in Western ny, the good new is the gas is only 25% higher than last year ans NOT the 40% they projected!!! hot dang ain't that great ???? i guess for that we should kiss thier royal behind. if we have a mild winter the price will go up cause they did not sell enough and if it is a cold winter the price will go up. HOW DO WE WIN? anyone ever recall the price going down?????

    We are on a "gas budget" here, we pay the same year round. They announced today that a monthly budget payment that was $130 would be around $103 all winter.

    I am sure some of the folks in S.Michigan would like to run a gas line down to Ohio this coming winter.LOL.

    I just filled up a 1000. I will probably add another 1000 next year so I can go year round with only one fill up (in the summer). That will sure make for a big bill.

    I just got topped off at 2.89, which is a little less than the 3.19 cap I purchased a month or two ago. The bill this time was $922. I figure I'll fill up at least three more times this winter - my budget plan is currently running $386 a month, 11 months a year. I have some decent timber on my property and have been thinking it may be time to start looking at those outdoor wood furnaces.

    Wow, that's a lot. We filled up a couple months ago, about $2 a gallon. But it was .42c a few years ago. In the last 5 years, our propane bill has gone from $25 / month to $150 / month.
