U.S. Predicts Lower Heating Bills This Winter Due to Weather

U.S. Predicts Lower Heating Bills This Winter Due to Weather

TheStreet (Oct. 7, 2014) — Cooler temperatures should cut heating bills this winter, as few expect the same harsh weather that chilled much of the nation last year. Low temperatures across the Midwest, South and East forced people to use more heat last winter and the price of some fuels soared because of shortages. This year everyone is likely to get a little break on their bills from the weather, and some residents will see substantial price declines too. Heating oil prices are the lowest they've been in four years, and propane prices have fallen far from their peaks last winter. Prices for natural gas and electricity should be higher this winter. But the combined 88% of U.S. households that rely on them for heat should still see lower bills because of lower demand, assuming the weather cooperates. Video provided by TheStreet

Deutsche Welle (Oct. 22, 2012) — People may say there's plenty of fish in the sea, but fisherman Paolo Fanciulli knows that their numbers aren't infinite. He and his colleagues earn their living from the sea. The Italian acknowledges that there "needs to be a balance between profit and environmental protection." So, together with the Italian authorities, he's helped sink hundreds of concrete blocks into the sea. They've been put there to tear the illegal nets used by large fishing trawlers.
