Most of California's electical power is generated with natural gas. Natural gas prices are almost double what they were last year.

I believe I am correct in saying people in California use electricity all year. Everyone is gonna feel this, no matter where they live.

My parents have oil heat- - they are probably going to buy their Winter oil this week or next while the price is down.

I haven't noticed if natural gas prices are following oil this year- - so far, I don't notice my gas bills being much higher than last year...
