Hmm, doesn't make much sense as with the rising prices of fuel, I'd think Anthracite would still work out in the end to be cheaper. While natural gas is generally domestic, it's price has risen. Plus the infrastructure to bring it in.

Well the thing is apples to apples anthracite is cheaper than natural gas. If you read the article closely you will see that honeywell did a full energy audit. The big cost savings is going to be upgraded lighting, we do that all the time at work. The rumor is they didn't brake down the audit to see where the money was being saved at they just lumped everything together. We saved close to 1k heating with anthracite last year. Just imagine what that would be on a large scale.
