    @VaGyver Wow! Wife and I lived in a house out in the boonies for about a year, year and a half, and we were spending $800 to $1100 a month for heating oil. Owner said it was perfectly normal 🤦‍♂️
    Was so drafty, you could see the curtains moving in the wind, furnace likely older than me

    @logosaetos I live in the Interior of Alaska. Ours is around $3 a gallon depending on what gas station you go to. Heating oil is $1.75 a gallon right now. In the villages, off the road system it can be as low as $6 and as high as $12.

    @BoughtVampir @sbrown5858 @custom_tom I have some of my Dad’s some of which were my Grandad’s, it feels good to use them, thinking about my Dad rewiring his tractor with the same tools I’m using or my Grandad building a shed around his heating oil tank etc.
