    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....:neutral:, but its new. The garage CNG heater got hookup this week...and its rockin' in there now.
