Wholesale natural gas is settling for more than $8 per million British thermal units on futures markets, close to the 25-year high of $13.45 set in 2005.

This time of year, it’s strange to see coffee shops selling pumpkin spice drinks when the weather outside is still warm enough for swimming.

But make no mistake about it, the weather will turn and it will get colder — cold enough to think about firing up the furnace. Unfortunately, those who absorbed a summer of high gas prices will get no relief when the heating bills arrive.
