FILE - In this April 20, 2011 file photo, an oilman prepares to fill his truck with home heating fuel at a depot in Quincy, Mass. Most residents will pay more to heat their homes this winter, according to government forecasts out this week of Oct. 11, 2013. Staying warm is expected to cost more because fuel prices are rising and the weather is expected to be cooler than the last two relatively warm winters. Natural gas, propane, and electricity prices are expected to rise, affecting 94 percent of U.S. households. Heating oil users will catch a slight price break, but still pay near-record bills to heat their homes. (AP Photo/Charles Krupa) less
