This burns me up

Oh, ouch! The natural gas utility here has announced that our heating costs will go up about $180 for the next heating season. (that's not a month, thank goodness.)
This is one of those areas that has me beating my head against a wall. Over the past few years, we've tried to cut back on the amount of gas we use. Our house is insulated, as are the windows. We've turned the thermostat down. We caulk. We use plastic and window quilts to cut out extra drafts. We even suppliment with wood heat.
So, the usage goes down, and our bills go up. .. Sigh.
