Winter Heating Costs and Older and Low-Income Households - March 2011

Since the mid-1990s, home heating costs have been increasing due to the overall rise in energy costs. Current projections of winter 2010-2011 heating costs indicate that heating expenses will be much higher this year for households using heating oil, while those using natural gas and electricity for heating are expected to see about the same costs as last year.

 

Sources: Residential Energy Consumption Survey, 2005; Short term Energy Outlook, March 2011 (Table WF01); Prepared by the AARP Public Policy Institute, March 2011.

 

Heating costs differ based on geographic location. These costs are projected to be highest in the New England census division where heating oil is the primary heating fuel used, followed by the Middle Atlantic census division.
