Our heating oil bill arrived today

$3.23 a gallon.  Last year it was $1.95.  It’s about 130 gallons to fill it up. So that’s $160 more (for about 6 weeks of heating.)

We can afford it. Lots of people in New England won’t be able to. So they’ll turn the thermostat way down, skip meals or medical care, that kind of thing. This winter is supposed to be mild, imagine what would happen if it was a cold one.
