I hear ya...

I'm glad they're helping us, yes.

But I've cut my costs this year alone by well over $1,200 (for the year, still it's a lot considering everything costs more...).
Yet that PLUS the stimulus check don't fill my tanks, not even in the difference.
I get TWICE the work per gallon done now than in earlier years.
But it still costs me right at double.

But for about 2-3 weeks I have to agree, it will help.

I just went to the fireplace store the other day looking for a wood burning fireplace insert. They wanted almost $2500 for the insert and then I would have to buy a metal liner for my chimney. Said that could run another $1,200. I can get a bunch of free wood over the year, but do I really want to be out there splitting wood when I already have no time for myself? NOPE! I'm in the middle of pricing pellet stoves. Looks like I can drop $3,700 for a pellet stove installed. Then I think its $220-$240 per ton for the pellets. Need 3 tons. So I would be up side down this year put back in the black for next heating season. Who knows where oil will be next year. I hope under $5 per gallon. Going to get ugly out there.

Really? The whole thing is a farce. I'm beginning to think those Montana militia guys are right: we the people need to reclaim the friggin' government. It's out of control, stagnant, and so over budgeted it's sickening...

I used to do installs. A steel flexliner has a HUGE markup for install, and is incredibly simple to do yourself. You literally just drop it down the chimney, screw it on at the top and the bottom, tape it, and you're done.

I grew up with a pellet stove while I lived in Seattle. Cost us a fortune in pellets...
