Earlier in the month, we had some mighty cold weather in the Midwest. With temps hovering around zero degrees, the windy weather made it seem like more than 20 degrees below zero. I knew it would hit us hard with our gas bill. Boy, it sure did.
I opened up the envelope and closed my eyes as I pulled the bill out. Wait, I didn’t just close them…they were clenched shut. I was mentally preparing myself. I opened my eyes and witnessed the highest gas bill we have ever had – just shy of $200. Gulp.
Our usage was up and so was the price of the gas. I knew the day would come where our bill would be that high (bound to happen with the way prices are going lately). But I didn’t think it would be so soon. Times like these really light that fire to get that energy efficient home of our dreams. We’ll also inch down the heat some more than it already has been lowered.
Hopefully, upcoming reductions in our electric usage will help counter the increase in our gas bills. There will be more on that later 🙂
