Heating costs take another leap

Thursday, November 29, 2007

Staying warm in Iowa will likely cost more money this winter.

Natural gas prices are projected to be 8 percent higher than last year's, while propane prices could be 15 percent higher, according to the Iowa Department of Natural Resources' winter heating forecast.

The worst news is for the 5 percent of Iowans using home heating oil, projected up 18 percent from a year ago.
