HARTFORD, Conn. (WTNH) -- Home energy costs are continuing to present a tremendous financial burden on Connecticut's lower income households.
Operation Fuel released a report Thursday that shows that many Connecticut households are having to make the decision to live without heat because they just can't afford the price of energy.
"We're forcing people to make these very difficult choices that are putting them in harms way because we don't want to recognize that we have a real problem, particularly with heat," said Pat Wrice, Operation Fuel.

The worst way to suffer is due to food and shelter. Even food they could manage for a day or two, but suffering cold without proper heating is the worst thing to face.

I have gas for heat, not as bad as oil...for the past 2 years I have kept my thermostate no higher than 65 in the winter..my furnace goes offwhen I go to work and back on when I come home from work...NOT because I really like it that cool....i need to save money.....
