    FYI last year I paid $3.33 for no. 2 heating fuel.

    This year I most recently paid $2.21.

    This recession does have some benefits.

    Well I'm glad my state mandated a more expensive Bio Heat mix for our heating oil this winter :cuckoo:

    I paid more than $200 a month for oil last year. And last year was almost a dollar a gallon less expensive than the year before.

    We had snow on Saturday, and it's been frosty every morning since.

    I have both natural gas and electricity for heating. Electrical for normal days, with a gas stove for really cold days. We will more than likely get a warm, dry winter in Portland this year, if it follows the normal El Nino pattern. Still, for those out of work, any extra is too much.

    Roasting a couple of logs in the old wood stove right now. Keeping the old oil belcher quarantined until absolutely needed. :eusa_shhh: Don't tell Nymex.
