Cheaper Gas All Around

First gasoline prices began dropping like mad; now home heating fuel is going to be more affordable. This is good new indeed.

Last Winter, my heating bill doubled (I was paying the budget amount) and I ended up way ahead by Spring. As a result, I've hardly been paying anything all year.

Despite what some twits might tell you, this price decrease has nothing to do with the fact that this is October in an election year:

An unusually warm winter and a mild hurricane season have prevailed in the first nine months of 2006, allowing natural gas inventories to rise to record levels that push wholesale prices downward.

Look for the same newspaper in which this article was printed to publish an editorial blaming President Bush for manipulating the price of fuels. Or have they already done that several dozen times in the last thirteen months?
