The price of things just continues to go up! I just got my second extremely high Nicor Gas bill. It’s almost twice what I was paying last winter. I called after receiving the first big bill last month and was told the price of natural gas has sky rocketed and that’s why my bill is so high. I try to keep my thermostat at around 68-70 when I’m home and down toward 60 when I’m not. I guess I’m glad we’re not Germany. They have stopped the flow of the Nord Stream 2 pipeline from Russia. A large source of natural gas for Germany. Speaking of gas as in petrol, oil looks to be headed toward $100 a barrel and that will mean at least $4 gas prices aren’t far behind. The Russian Ukraine situation isn’t going to help that any and now as we move toward Spring and more driving….well get ready!
