Boy, I had read all of the recent reports about how gas prices would sky rocket this winter, but WOW! [:0] We just got our December gas bill yesterday and it is double what is was this same time last year. I'm curious as to what you keep your home temp. We have a two-level SFH (2850 sqft). We keep our main level at 65 (3x/wk during the day when nobody is home; and 70 (4x/wk during the day when somebody is home). Second level at 65 (4x/wk during the day); and 70 (during the evenings and all weekend). We just recently installed programmable thermostats on both levels and changed the temp. settings a little so we shall see if there is a difference in our next gas bill.
