It seems crazy, but to your pocket book it may already be reality. People complain about the price at the pump but they think their home utility bills are outside their circle of influence. They aren't.
The average American drives 33 miles per day. If the price of gas today increased to $5.39/gal the average American would spend about an additional $100/month. Would gas at this price change the amount you drive? Would it make you think about getting another type of vehicle? If you're in an inefficient home you are already losing this money, quietly. Sadly, there are inefficient brand new homes being built in Omaha every day.
Gas mileage is a factor in your car buying decision, make sure it is a part of your new home buying decision.
We'd be happy to discuss energy efficiency with you at our new model in Elk Ridge, our Street of Dreams home in the South Hamptons, or our new model opening at the end of the month in Remington Ridge.
Happy energy efficient house hunting,
