Just got my natural gas bill in the mail. Last month's bill was $25.02, this
month's was $72.99! Used 70 CCF of gas on this bill, used 70 CCF on the last
bill. I may drill a shallow well and start producing my own gas at these prices.

Being inside Louisiana they can get away with charging whatever they want for
the gas, once it crosses the state line its regulated by the feds who try to
keep the price down.

You Yankees quit using so much of our gas, this is getting too expensive. <VBG>
Just kidding, y'all stay warm, I have stock in a few gas producers and
transporters. Crank that thermostat up, if my dividends go up I can afford to
run the furnace.
