We are seniors on fixed income and in a state of shock over the largest utility bill we have every had in almost forty years here. It is $50 higher than in November!! We installed a new energy efficient furnace this fall, turned down the water heater to 120 degrees, run the washing machine only a few times a week, and do not have a gas range. Our electric bill has zoomed, gas usage not much higher than last month but the gas cost just soared. Are we the only ones? Is this the result of Enron pay off? Looks like we'll have to cut back someplace - again.
