Cost of Asheville Utilities and Heat: A Comparison

It's been in the low 70's for a few days now, but the shortest day of the year, and hence the dead of winter is nearly upon us. Back in September we compiled this handy tool to compare the costs of different fuels in the home using basic arithmetic.

The formula in that link allows buyers or sellers to determine the costs involved for #2 heating oil, kerosene, propane, natural gas, and electricity. The multiplication and division will not change, all that changes over time is the current retail cost of each fuel.

We thought it would be wise to provide links for our readers to look up current fuel costs. To wit:
Current Oil, Propane, and Kerosene retail prices can all be found at this link.

Natural Gas of course is limited outside of Asheville proper because this commodity must be delivered via underground infrastructure. Current retail prices can best be found here.

Electricity of course is also delivered by way of infrastructure. French Broad Electric is the major supplier for our county, website here. Progress Energy and Duke Power also serve the western part of the state.

And as long as we are on the subject of energy and utilities in general, here is a handy place to find current Asheville gasoline prices/gallon. Rates for city water in Asheville are here.
