    Default Cold weather is upon us...

    So, I decided to make a non vehicle related poll. Hope you'll all forgive me.

    With oil prices on the rise, and cold season upon us, I just had to call around for home heating oil prices, which are pushing $3.00/gal as well. Kinda sickening to me, since it's not even remotely as refined as gasoline.

    So how many use oil heat? How many wish you didn't, I know I wish we didn't.

    Natural Gas baby! It's cheap at the moment and they just found the world's largest supply of natural gas under Forth Worth/Arlington/Mansfield Texas, so buy CNG so I get more money when they start drilling near me next year.

    every year someone burns their house down because they try to heat their house by turning on the oven and leaving the door open. :-(

    Swap that oil heater for a heat pump and tell the oil tanker dude where he can put that $3 oil.

    I replaced my old oil furnace for a Natural Gas about 2 years ago, I don't really see the savings myself...., but its new. The garage CNG heater got hookup this week...and its rockin' in there now.
