New York - Americans should brace for sticker shock on home heating costs as temperatures drop this fall and winter. Prices for natural gas, the most common way to heat homes and a leading fuel source for generating electricity, have surged more than 180% over the past 12 months to $5.90 per million British thermal units. Natural gas hasn't been this expensive since February 2014. The risk is that an early winter or extremely cold fall temperatures will force households to crank up the heat. That would further shrink the nation's below-average stockpiles of natural gas and could lift prices even

The Biden regime looks at a report like this, scratches their wicked heads, gets filled with narcissistic glee and revenge, and contemplates how they will make things even MORE DIFFICULT for Americans.

We have all that wind energy. They will be turning the electricity off in Texas when it gets below 50 to preserve energy for the hospitals and government offices. Biden has shut down the energy industry, and surprise surprise, we have no energy for the winter. Biden, Pelosi, and Schumer will be all cozy in their pink slippers.

HOW CAN THIS BE CORRECT? Prior to the advent of fracking, NG stocks were seaosnal ans would rise & fall according to demand. But with fracking, we had stocks so full we were exporting NG. Dear God what have the Democrats done?

They got rid of many of the coal burning plants, which up until about 10 years ago generated well over 50% of the country's energy needs, because, "gas is cheaper than coal. It's just the market." Now they've driven up the cost of natural gas and will try to do away with that fuel source as well. This is not an accident. Voodoo energy can never meet the needs of the baseload.

No problemo...the Demorats have a secret plan to get Putin to sell gas to America [with 10% for the big guy] and the pipeline will HAVE TO be routed through China, [with 10% for the big guy] and finally, the gas will HAVE TO be carried only in the CCP's slave shipper COSCO [with 10% for the big guy] and, finally, only handled by union labor at the US ports. Being a "patriotic" American, there may only 9.5% for the big guy on that final deal... Let's feel sorry for poor Hunter, who would have to turn out his "art" with a spraygun to keep up with the demand.

Geez. The ‘little guy’ is the one that gets hurt. The millionaires don’t have to worry about a couple of hundred bucks extra on their heating bill. It’s the family just getting by that will be devastated if their heating bill doubles. I would say this Democrat disaster will kill them at the polls but the fix is in on ballot fraud. The Dems have no conscience when it comes to power. They want power and will do anything to get it it. That includes murder, media propaganda and even murder.

WASHINGTON - U.S. congressional Democrats are considering including the first federal fee to tackle plastic pollution in the multitrillion-dollar reconciliation bill, a proposal that is drawing opposition from the plastics and petrochemical industry. Senator Sheldon Whitehouse and Representative Tom Suozzi are in talks with other Democrats to include their REDUCE Act as a source of revenue in the reconciliation bill. It would impose a 20-cent-per-pound fee on virgin - or new - plastic for single-use products such as plastic bags and beverage containers.

Vaccination rates among people who are pregnant have been low, despite evidence that vaccines can prevent the "severe risk of severe disease" posed to pregnant people from COVID-19. Only 18% of pregnant people have received a dose, according to Centers for Disease Control and Prevention data. While new data shows overall racial disparities in COVID-19 vaccinations are improving, federal numbers show pregnant Black people are the least vaccinated compared to those expecting in other races. Just 15% of Black pregnant people are fully vaccinated and only 13% have received at least one dose, according to the CDC. Women giving birth

U.S. home prices surged 19.7% in July, once again posting the biggest jump in more than 30 years. The record gain in the S&P CoreLogic Case-Shiller index of property values nationwide followed a 18.7% jump in June and was the 14th straight month of accelerating price increases. The U.S. housing market has been on fire, with the pandemic fueling intense demand for suburban homes. A shortage of affordable properties has pushed up prices and kept some potential buyers on the sidelines. “The last several months have been extraordinary not only in the level of price gains, but in the consistency

It’s the reason Joe Biden proposed it during his administration, and it’s something that is long overdue,” Obama stated, according to GMA. The former president went on to say the situation at Del Rio is a reminder that more work needs to be done and that President Biden understands the situation better than anyone. “As big-hearted as he is,

Well, with that disgusting video we found out about Joe’s hairy legs but it seems that at least his hands appear to look less hairy back in January when he got his first vaccine shot.
