Sure glad I bought a dual fuel HVAC system when I replaced the gas heat--electric AC that was in this house when I bought it.

I just use my electric heat pump more this winter.

On the bright side, when riots start burning down your city you'll have free heat.

Snopes?

I thought Snopes was a fact checking site?

When did they start reporting news in real time?

The big number is Propane which hardly anyone uses and the estimates have low and high end anchors.

So far where I live we're having the warmest October on record with a predicted mild winter to follow. I'm already one heating month down

This was going to be my year. I had propane heat for the last 20 years and then just moved to a house heated by natural gas. I was finally going to heat my house for pennies (comparatively.)

Is propane mainly a country folk fuel?

^ Yeah, gas lines don't go everywhere and it's cheaper then electric

[quote] set to rise by more than 50%

That is not what the article says. It says heating costs to rise UP TO 54%. "Up to" and "more than" are two very different things. Up to means that the heating costs could rise anywhere from 0% to whatever the top amount is they claim.

Up to is an old advertising trick for the stupid. People see something on TV that says "YOUR BENEFITS TO RISE UP TO 60%" and all they see is that they're going to be getting 60% more benefits. Then when they actually get 5% they can't understand why they were lied to.

STOP BEING STUPID - PAY ATTENTION TO WHAT YOU'RE READING.
