((DALE MOORE/ROANOKE GAS: AS CRUDE GOES UP.. NATURAL GAS GOES UP.
And crude IS up... at the highest it's been in years.
The reason is troubles in the Middle East.... Hurricanes that damaged oil and natural gas facilities and a fear of a short supply.
Even though Roanoke Gas says the **supply** is adequate.. the prices are still high. DALE MOORE: RIGHT NOW WE AT ROANOKE GAS ARE PAYING AN ALL TIME HIGH FOR THE GAS WE PURCHASE.
So that means higher costs for you the consumer-
an estimated 15 to 20 percent more this winter for natural gas and *propane.*
If you paid 100 dollars a month last winter.. expect to pay 115 to 120 dollars this season.
Home heating oil prices are expected to jump even more.. by about 30 precent.. a 100 dollar bill would be 130 this winter. I PERSONALLY DON'T THINK THE PRICES WILL STAY WHERE THEY ARE. I BELIEVE THEY WEILL EVENTUALLY GO BACK DOWN. I JUST CAN'T TELL YOU WHEN THEY WILL TURN BACK DOWN.))
