If so how much?

Guy at work says his monthly gas bill went from $120 to $320 (approx) roughly a 266% increase. I don't believe it YET.

I have LP. My parents have natural gas and they said their bill went up $60 a month.

Natural gas hit a new record price on December 9th, but has dropped back a little bit since the weather has warmed up again.

Our local utility offered and option to lock in rates for the entire season in September and those that should come out ahead of those that chose to "go with the flow".

Most of the gas for this year is already in storage so hopefully the price will come back down before the cheaper stored gas is used up. If the prices stay high and the weather gets cold again, it won't be pretty.

So, with that said, does it cost more this year to heat your home?

My utility bill jumped $70/month a few months ago ( from $230 to $300/month).

20%. From $10 to $12. (I only have a natural gas stove/oven)

Tomorrow- 12/15, they're going to announce natural gas stockpile level. Big drawdown and it's on to $20, otherwise back towards $10.

My natural gas stock is up

Yup, about 20% this year.

BUT, it is a fishbowl market. It is produced just off the beach in Anchorage, it is not shipped anwhere else, and there are no huge consumers with an artificial demand like fertilizer plants in the market.

"Due to market conditions" my ass.
