I'm paying about the same price per gallon. I can heat my house for less than ten days on 100 gallons of heating oil. It's over $1,000 a month. It costs me around $300 a month in gas to commute to work and I haven't seen my electric bill for this month yet. Everyone says electricity rates have skyrocketed.

I guess it always requires money and pain to move the population in the direction government thinks it should go. Government never seems to do the suffering.

I just paid 3.09 a gallon at the pump in Fairbanks. Joe likes us better because we’re closer to Russia.

They even let you burn it in your pickup.

I have been using off road Diesel , bring it in cans 30 gallons at a time

I am going to be right about 120 gallons for the year started at 2.49 for the first 60 then 30 at 2.89 and the last 30 was 3.18

truck price has been about 40-60 cents higher than that

that is to get me through the early morning hours while I sleep and some of the days I am not here. the rest of the day and night is all wood heat.

before I installed the wood stove 750-800 gallons a year was the norm


America only has one issue, we have a Responsibility crisis and everything else stems from it.

It's been a while since we heated with fuel oil. Not since I was a kid. But over 10 gallons a day? Is your house huge, or just extremely NOT energy efficient?

I remember when I was young and my mom was newly divorced my grandfather pouring a 5 gallon jug of kerosene into the fuel tank when we ran out and that would last us 2-3 days until we could get it refilled.

That stimulus is going to hurt for a long time. Its being compounded by Brandons determination to increase fuel costs. Dollar gets devalued. Transportation costs go up, increasing the cost of goods even more. You want to take peoples money, keep them busy trying to live, just take away cheap energy.

FWIW I still believe fraud put him in office.

I heat with natural gas. Got a level payment. same thing every month. Settle with the gas Company in the spring. Usually got a few bucks to put on next years bill. Every 4-5 years I take a rebate check. I am scared to ask my bride how much we are paying now. I don't need higher blood pressure. I am expecting a catch up bill in a few months this year.
