Fuel Oil costs to rise

Yesterday Punxsutawney Phil told us that we should expect another 6 weeks of winter. With that in mind please consider that the US House of Representatives overwhelmingly passed the “farm bill” and it is up for a vote in the US Senate today. (click the blue words to read about it)

 This bill, if passed, could increase the cost of heating oil which is widely used here in the North Country. An alternative to fuel oil would be natural gas. If the increase in tax and as a result the price of fuel oil concerns you this might be the time to think about contacting NYSEG and inquiring about bringing natural gas to the Town of Plattsburgh?
