"I wish we had an option. We use oil, and the price has gone up from $1.15 a gallon to $2.05. We'll try to be more careful with heat."

"Yeah, we've got an electric furnace, and last year we had a pellet stove. It caused our fire insurance to go down $100 a year."

"I've cut down on how many heaters I use in my apartment. I usually use two, and I've cut down to one, set at low temperature. It's too expensive."
