Officials in the ruling class have warned Americans to get ready to pay much more for natural gas this winter. The Energy Information Administration (EIA) has released data on projected energy costs, and it is far from good news.
Americans are already feeling the pinch at the pump and grocery store. While the cost of everything else is rising because of government-induced inflation. But now, they can add heating their home to the list of things that they are about to pay “much more” for. Fortunately, things are still not as bad as they are in Germany.
The EIA said it forecasted that U.S. households that primarily use natural gas for heating will spend an average of $931 on heating this winter which is a whopping 28%, or $206, more than last year. Nearly half of all U.S. homes rely on natural gas as the primary heating fuel, according to the U.S. Census Bureau’s 2021 American Community Survey.
The expected increase in natural gas bills, according to the EIA, is due to higher retail natural gas prices. The agency said it expected retail natural gas prices to rise 22%, from $13.02 per thousand cubic feet (McF) last winter to $15.95/McF this winter. -Fox Business
“This winter, we expect colder temperatures and slightly more household consumption to contribute to higher natural gas bills compared with last winter,” the EIC said. “For households that use natural gas as their primary space heating fuel, we expect average consumption this winter to increase by 5%, or 58.4 Mcf, from last winter.”
The ruling class has also told its slaves to be aware of blackouts this winter. A lack of LNG (liquid natural gas) is said to be the reason.
New England could face blackouts in the coming months as more global shipments of liquefied natural gas (LNG) are being directed to Europe, the Wall Street Journal reported on Monday, citing power producers. Germany is already grappling with an unprecedented natural gas shortage that is likely to cause some major problems for the majority of the population this winter.
This winter could be a rough one for many people. Prepare and stay aware. Cut costs where you can because prices are going to continue to go up until they can convince the naive to accept the digital dollar.
