(( The Energy Department's statisticians predict higher fuel prices and short supplies will drive home heating bills skyward this winter, with the steepest price increases fallling on families using natural gas.

SOT: Mark Mazur, Acting Commissioner, Energy Information Agency.

"Combined together, the expected increase in demand and the expected increase in price, we expect that the typical home owner will be paying about 40% or more higher for natural gas this year than last year."

SOT: Guillermo Jara, Homeowner

"They raise your prices you have no choice but to pay."
The news is not as bad for homeowners with oil heat. The rise in heating oil prices is less dramatic because of increased production by OPEC and the planned release of oil from the Strategic Petroleum Reserve.

SOT: Mark Mazur, Acting Commissioner, Energy Information Agency.

"Under normal weather conditions, with our projected production increases from OPEC and other sources, we expect the that the relative position of U.S. crude oil stocks to improve somewhat over the winter and into 2001."
After three unusually mild winters, normal conditions could be a lot colder this season, putting a strain on fuel supplies and setting the stage for higher prices. For some homeowners, a long, harsh winter could be as cold inside as it is outside. Renay San Miguel, CBS Marketwatch, New York. ))
