Senator Schumer warns that Westchester residents may see oil heat prices rise
Westchester residents may soon see their home heating oil bills going up.
Senator Charles Schumer (D-New York) visited one Yonkers family complaining that their bill just keeps getting more expensive. Schumer says the reason is because the Saudi government plans to cut oil production.
According to Schumer, more than 50 percent of Westchester residents heat their homes with oil. He says they can expect to see an average increase of $100 this year.
Schumer hopes that someday the U.S. will not have to rely on Mideast oil.
