According to the October 2017 U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA) Winter Fuels Outlook, most U.S. households can expect higher heating bills this winter (October through March) than the last two winters. The expected increase in winter heating bills is likely to be the result of both higher heating demand because of relatively colder weather and, to a lesser extent, higher fuel prices.
In fact, on January 5, 2018, the U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA) reported that “much colder-than-normal temperatures across much of the United States have led to increased demand for heating, much of which is provided by natural gas."1 The EIA also reported higher prices in natural gas and electricity markets during the week ending January 5, as a result of the increased demand.
