As Americans’ gas bills continue to increase, a new report has put gas prices into context and offers tips for consumers.
As of July 1, gas is now $1.99 per gallon, or more than triple the average of about $1 per gallon from July 2014, according to data from the Energy Information Administration.
The price of a gallon of regular unleaded gas is currently about $2.26.
Gas prices are rising faster than inflation.
The EIA reports that average gas prices for the first nine months of the year increased 4.5 percent.
Gas costs are now nearly double the cost of electricity and heating.
Gas is currently the most expensive energy source, at more than $2 a gallon.
The cost of energy has increased by more than 1,000 percent since 2008.
Gas is the most common consumer product used to heat or cool homes, with more than three-quarters of homes heating and three-fourths of homes being insulated.
Gas also is the primary heat source in many buildings and is the single largest component of home heating fuel used in homes.
In 2016, the energy-intensive fuel accounted for more than 50 percent of total U.S. greenhouse gas emissions.
Gas can be used to produce electricity, heat and cool homes.
However, the fuel is not usually used for cooking.
Instead, it is used to convert natural gas into electricity.
According to the EIA, electricity production in 2016 was up 1.6 percent compared to the previous year.
But heating and cooling is a more common use of gas, with about 75 percent of all residential gas use occurring for those purposes.
Gas heating oil (GLH) is the main fuel used for gas heating, and it is also the most energy-dense fuel.
According a 2016 study by the EIS, GLH is used in about 40 percent of U.K. homes and in almost two-thirds of those homes in Germany.
In other countries, such as China, GLF is used almost exclusively.
Glh can also be used in the manufacture of industrial and automotive products.
In 2017, GLHF was the fuel of choice for about 17 percent of vehicles used worldwide.
Gas can also generate electricity, but only in a small fraction of homes.
The EIA said that in 2016, a typical household used about 0.5 gallons of gas per month for cooking and heating, which is about a third of the amount used in 2017.
According the EIAS, a single gallon of gasoline (or diesel) used to cook a meal costs about $4.40.
But the price of electricity, heating oil and gas is about $8.30 per gallon.
In some regions, such in the South and Midwest, the price is higher, as more households use heating oil for cooking, cooling or both.
But in some cases, people are saving money by using more expensive fuels.
In states such as North Dakota, consumers save about $5.60 a month by using a cheaper gas.
In the Midwest, it costs consumers about $6.70 a month.
In addition to being more energy-efficient, natural gas can also lower pollution levels, which are responsible for many of the world’s environmental problems.
The amount of greenhouse gases emitted from natural gas production and transportation accounts for about 40 to 50 percent.
The other 40 to 60 percent comes from the use of fossil fuels and methane emissions from the oil and natural gas industry.
As Americans use more natural gas and fuel, the amount of CO2 released by that fuel is expected to increase.
to a report from the Center for American Progress, there is an average of 4.3 million metric tons of CO02 released each year from the combustion of natural gas.
That amounts to about 30 million tons of carbon dioxide a year.
While Americans are driving more fuel-efficient cars, the ESI says that the cost to drive fewer miles per gallon has increased, especially for drivers of hybrid and electric vehicles.
