I can't believe my gas bill increase. I am on a budget and the monthly bill went from $100, to $148 per month. I only have heat, water heater and stove and I don't use any of them that much.

The first thing we need to do is castrate Joe Biden and work the way down the line. Then start on the gas and electric company officials.

I have always been against genocide, but am beginning to change my mind.

Sorry, But I had to blow off to someone and living by ones' self I have to blow off to you all...

Gas, electric, gasoline, and food... what other necessities can they raise?

Everything has shot up in price the last two years. Itís a tough time to be trying to raise children, thatís for sure. Worst part is it ainít done climbing, not by a long shot.

I've got a rifle deer tag in the dresser drawer at home, and also put in for a bow tag and an antelope rifle tag this year. Hoping I fill them all! It'll go a long way in keeping the family fed.

Go to southern Louisiana and watch the LNG (liquified natural gas) ships coming and going - hauling 5 billion cubic feet of LNG - mostly to china. Basically a pressurized, temp controlled, floating natural gas tank. Who do you think gets the gas when it goes to the highest bidder? All the natural gas companies in southern US building gas lines straight to the LNG refineries with a ship loading dock.

Are you talking propane or natural gas?

Is this your even pay plan with your gas company?

If you have a high utility bill you need to replace your windows . Blow in more insulation, and seal the cracks under your doors...
I was repeatedly told that when i complained about my electric bill... LOL

My son drew a deer tag here, but thatís all the tags we drew between the 3 of us old enough to hunt. One deer wonít feed 7 people for very long!

Yeah, before all this started I had over $100k in my nest egg for retirement. I no longer have anywhere near that. But thereís a lot of years left for me to recover so thatís not my biggest concern today. What worries me is it costs a fortune every month just for the basics. If it gets much worse weíre gonna have to start diapering the baby with old t-shirts

With my very old houst it would be cheaper to burn it and start new. But building materials pricing. Instead I put in an outdoor wood burner. That was before the crazy inflation

Bob I thought you was the one ďlecturingĒ everyone on finance last year. If it makes you feel better, Iíve lost close to $100K in my 401K. But my personal nest egg is still alive and well, until the pool man comes knocking, lol.
As far as deer, I told the wife to go ahead and buy another freezer. Between all legal hunters in my family we can take 72. And if it gets really bad, weíll do some ďnuisanceĒ harvesting on private properties.

Seems, I've heard that before.

Oh yeah, some idiot from Georgia.

But at least we're not in a recession yet. Well that depends on what the definition of recession is.

Wanna be, Because of my age Iím invested pretty aggressively. Like I said, Iíve got a long time to recover, and when the market starts swinging back the other direction itíll climb back up just as quickly as it dipped down.

Wonít matter though if I have to cash it out to keep from starving

I am talking Natural Gas and it is our Budget Plan, i.e., you pay that amount every month for a whole year .... unless it goes up and then they change the rate during the year.

More than 30 yrs ago our small electric coop put that request out in the mail. The preacher at the local church worked for the power company and was pushing to lower the high arching ceiling in the church down to 8 foot. One little old lady rebelled and he didn't get the job done.
A lot of people in the 2 counties did do many of those things. Then in less than 2 years our coop raised the rates with the excuse that we didn't use enough electricity to get a discount from their supplier from out of state.
Maybe they should have sent out a big Thank You for lowering your usage with their rate increase letter !
