Unless demand eases up for some unknown reason, get used to it, expect another 40-60% increase next year as well..........it will likley put some folks out of their homes, or make em cold at the very least. We were all warned quite awhile ago, those that didnt listen and plan, better start thinking about it before it becomes a serious problem. In 2-3 years unless something changes the situation, most folks will pay more for energy than they do in mortgage payments, counting their cars many are already. Part of this is Katrina, part of it is just growth coupled with bad planning and policies set in motion almost 20 years ago. The latest "energy" bill from CONgress is guaranteed to make this alot worse. Utilities have been deregulated almost completely, and they are being snatched up by investors who dont care if you freeze, they will get paid one way or the other. Natural gas supplies not only here in the US but worldwide are getting tighter than even gasoline.
