Albany- Their are several things you can do now to prevent paying high heating bills in the winter months. Natural gas and propane providers are expecting prices to go up if the country goes to war with Iraq.

"October, November, and December are usually mild months and you have very low utility bills. So if I was a wise consumer I would bankroll some of that money and put it aside for January, February and March's bills," says Albany Water, Gas and Light Director of Public Relations Lorie Farkas.

Farkas also says a consultant will come out and give you tips on how to weatherize your home for free of charge.
