Thanks Bob

Good site, but somewhat deceptive. Look at their bullet points:

Point 1: How does the average U.S. hosehold standard of living compare with that in Albania.

Point 2: Why do they use 2005 numbers? Because the oil prices in 2005 were about 30% higher than they are today.

Point 3: End users has also changed. A/C is much more efficient today, as is heating (and they use electrical heat rather that natural gas, as a comparision.

Statistics can be used to lie, but only to someone who doesn’t know about statistics.

Hope this helps;

Do we really need yet another political thread? :slight_smile:

I mentioned nothing about politics in my post.

Just commenting that some people have an agenda, and their reasons might be political.

I prefer to deal with facts.

Hope this helps;

Great diagrams! I especially like the condensation in the ceiling, can light sealing and exterior wall details!

I am moving to Albania and opening a flashlight store!


Did you mean 20% lower in 2005? Oil peaked in 2005 on August 11th at $60 barrel. It is hovering around $75 a barrel, currently. Maybe Con-Ed was in some type of oil hedging options and they were buying at $97 a barrel and guessed wrong.

Wellhome is the largest energy auditing company in the US. They are owned by Masco. Masco owns a lot of companies including Behr paint and Kohler plumbing fixtures. I have meet several of their local branch guys, all are super professional and they do a great job.


You’re always causing trouble Bob.
