Some Heating Costs Falling

The frigid weather across eastern Carolina has some thinking about those winter heating bills on the way in the coming months.

And just like the tumbling prices at the pumps right now, there's some good news when it comes to the cost of heating your home, depending on what you use.

The Energy Information Administration now projects overall winter heating costs to be down. In its latest report those using oil heat are expected to see a 13-percent decline from last year. Propane is expected to fall 8.1-percent. Electricity and natural gas will see a slight increase.

North Carolina residents spend about 40-percent of their energy bills to heat their homes. The heating season normally lasts from October to March.

    It's ironic that as we are heading deep into a recession, the price of everything is coming down. Don't be deceived folks; it's not as good as it looks. You better stash all of the gold you have. Get ready...
