When people refer to heating bill going up are they talking about gas bill or electricity bill?  In the winter if we use the heat, my gas bill goes from like $14 to $22.  Not a bank breaker.

That's because you don't live in a place that looks like this.

A year ago I was paying $2.90 for a gallon of gas = $6.00 a gallon gas...fact or just my opinion.  Numbers...just numbers.

Except gas now is about $4.00. Stop lying.

Also, what does that have to do with anything? A year ago, demand was less because fewer people were driving. I mean, seriously. Stop using misinformation.

You were saying?.... ;D ;D >:D

They ran out of gas in UK stations. There is a global energy crisis. I thought he is a financial expert.

Given the US fracking providers were all told to get their balance sheets in order I can see a further constriction of supply and $200/bbl oil, which will go a long way to fixing those balance sheets.

More stoked than ever on my base Model 3 + 26% subsidized Tesla Solar + PW as the more electric cars get sold the tougher it will be for the CA utilities to supply enough juice to the grid. Tesla now even offers a new way to get paid by sharing my PW for a neighborhood micro grid - not happening!!

When did I ever specify OC?...doesn't matter, if it in the high $4's now it will be $5 soon enough with oil at $81.51 a barrel today.  Remember...inflation is your friend.

Do you even understand why there's price increase? Do you understand supply and demand? Like I said, it has absolutely NOTHING whatsoever who's the President. Stop being dense.
