How will you cope with the rising cost of energy?

Entergy has announced that its rates will increase by 28% over the next three months due to the higher costs of natural gas. Gasoline is at $4.00 a gallon and rising. The City of Vicksburg has raised natural gas prices five times this year. Almost everything we buy today costs more than yesterday. How will you cope? What would you recommend we do to stem the rising costs of energy? Would you recommend drilling offshore and in ANWR? How about alternative energy sources – wind, solar, geothermal, etc.? Would more coal and nuclear plants help? What role does conservation play, and of what will it consist? Are you planning on purchasing a more fuel-efficient vehicle? Your input is solicited.

  1. Nuclear plants are the best answer, followed by wind and solar. In the interim, drill!

  2. Drill,I agree. In fact go the Newt Gingich site American Solutions and signed the petition over billion people have signed it; including myself I might add.
