"The Energy Information Administration (EIA) is warning homeowners that heating bills for houses could be significantly higher this winter--perhaps by as much as 50%." FORTUNE, October 14, 2021.
The grim forecast for Winter '21/'22 is first based on expected jumps in fuel costs:
- +30% for natural gas
- +54% for propane
- +43% for heating oil
- +6% for electricity.*
Accuweather's forecast for a colder than normal winter in the Northeast could make things far worse.
Considering a worst-case scenerio (10% colder than last winter), the EIA projects actual costs could be increased as much as:
- +50% for natural gas users
- +94% for propane users
- +59% for heating oil users
- +15% for electricity users.*
