♪ gerri: hello, everyone, i am gerri willis. tonight on "the willis report" it. gerri: consumers brace for another spike in utility bills. >> it has been pretty rough out here. rri: new charges over hospitals inflating medical bills. and retirement accounts take a beating as stocks nosedive. if the market correction everyone has been talking about finally here? we are watching out for you tonight on "the willis report." ♪ double mocha ♪
♪ gerri: we are going over to the chief oil analyst, welcome to you, it is great to have you here. veryone is facing these high home energy costs. when you look at these costs, i am hearing something like 90% can do how can it be when the whole country is getting a bigger bill? >> the problem is that you can't move it from where most of it is
in texas. gerri: showing viewers what is going on with these winter heating costs. natural gas is up 13% year-over-year. electricity is 2%. heating oil is 1%. these are the costs as you see them of what the average household will face in payg their bill. what are people doing out there? >> this is one of the more expensive lately. as he said the electricity is not a quite as high. but what is happening is utility is facing heavy mand because of the cold that we are seeing. so it is really putting a constrained on all of our
heating sources right now. gerri: so many people have otten actual gas. there's tracking going on. and now in the northeast where supply constraints because of these pipelines exist, what gives? >> we are producing this and the only problem is getting it to market right now. and they have these interruptible contracts, the building of schools, to get a lower cost they have these with utilities. they asked them to switch over to heating oil as well. as we sometimes have to worry abouthe harbor freezing. gerri: talk come over to you,
the last time you were on the show apparently it was actually a utility thing? >> yes, i think i was broadcasting from charleston south carolina at the time and some of the south east areas have not seen spikes that low. when i got down into the teens, one of the utility plans grows. so there were interesting things in the area. >> and that can affect the broader economy. do you see that? and what can consumers do to reduce their costs? >> a couple of things that they can do is obviously turned on the thermostat. last time i was here we talked about heating oil and now is not the time to do it. but in may and june when he and heating oil was at the cheapest.
and so if i am using this i am paying 130 or whatever does and so i know it is coming every time. @% taught, what are you telling people about how to reduce their bills? this is killing people. this is not like something that you may decide not to spend at the end of the day. >> exactly. it brings up a great point. one of the things i have been sharing with people is that oftentimes if you go on a budget plan with utilities, it is based on past usage. so gt on a budget plan right away and that will smooth out the cash flow. it won't necessarily provide savings to you, but it will smooth out the cash flow. every degree counts. if you don't touch her therstat and you set your thermostat at 68, you will find that every degree saves about 3%
under energy bill. gerri: 3% under energy bill for every degree do you dialback? >> every 1 degree saves about 3% under energy bill through this spi. right now with the commodities over the next couple of months we will see big demand. gerri: where's where is this going? how much worse can get this get. >> it can always get worse. >> we could hope that talks to one he still doesn't see his shadow and spring will be right around the corner. but better plans need to be laid. like i said before is that we have a supply but it's a matter of moving it around. gerri: todd, do you have an outlook? do you see february. >> it ould.
i'm not a weather foecaster. but it seems that natural gas is always the long-term winner. we do have an abundant supply. so for the long-term i think that natural gas is still going to be the winner. half the homes are heated with natural gas. but it's just the short-term supply thais really creating the problem. and so yes, we might have double bills for a month or two. gerri: that doesn't sound good. thank you for coming on tonight. you guys are great. we appreciate what you have to say. coming up in about a half hour i will be joined by the host of today's homeowners. danny will have advice on keeping your home safe from these extreme winter temperatures. some were on the freezeout going on we have done this with an economist from the university of maryland. peter, welcome to the show these
are the folks at really that really getting squeezed, the middle class. >> we just heard how the pipelines are not big enough. because all the restrictions that mr. obama put in place. those folks in northern new england who reliably vote democrat should not complain. they can lay their high energy bills -- they want to complain about it, but send an e-mail to the white house. because there are lots of inexpensive energy is being produced in america that can't get around. gerri: supply constraints, plenty of products but not getting to the right place.
there's a there is a huge problem with jobs. one interesting fact is that 7.9 million jobs, that is what it would take to get unemployment back and we are just not doing the job here. tell uabout your analysis of what is wrong with the jobs market. >> we have been giving out paladins like extended unemployment benefits. whether we should be producing more domestic oil and gas. we have to fix the trade deficit with china. we have to do things with regard to regulation. things need to be done on wall street. the dodd-frank is turning out to be a bust. jamie dimon seems to be settling on a billion-dollar issue every day. and goldman sachs has found new ways to trade and gamble. the small bank around the country, the regional banks that make the loans that create the jobs, kennedy business?
i have spoken to regulators in washington. well, they are tired of hearing the bankers whine. i'm tired of hearing the oma administration complain about someone else. we really have to do something about health care. obamacare is driving up the price. gerri: we will talk more about that sometimes they stagnate and go down and that is not the way it should be at all in america. what will it take to lift incomes? you made the interesting point about unemployment benefits. these programs were not built to take people on six month or year and now we cannot solve this probleof unemployment and across the nation, three quarters of folks think that we are in a recession.
>> to them that we are. the average guy that has a job his income has fallen. he doesn't have enough money to meet his belt. it doesn't take into consideration higher taxes. but i will tell you what won't fix it is making unemployment visits permanent and forever. enterprise zones, either the president wants to resurrect something from the administration, he wants to create opportunities. all that does is create jobs for community activists. it is time that we hold up what is holding up the economy. they may create jobs for fewer bureaucrats in washington. but it keeps regular folks in iowa from getting work. gerri: a lot of them are on food stamps.
turning this around, people need to be able to get good jobs. they give a coming on the show tonight. we appreciate your time. gerri: we want to know what you think. here's her question. is the middle class. too big of a burden? but on the right-hand side of the screen and we will share the results at the end of tonight's show. and it was a disastrous day on wall street. in one author says that it's not a matter of if your identity is stolen but when mine was earned in korea in953.

is worrisome about the federal reserve and the poor receive policies. what do you see with foreign currencies right now? what could cause this sort of contagion like we saw back in the 90's? >> by foreign currencies of the you're referring to the emerging-market currencies, and that is a story that is months old now. last year the emerging markets still very, very poorly. the developed world markets did very well. places like brazil or down double digits. on top of that amount the currencies were down as well as the stock market. what we are seeing right now is kind of like probably a selling climax. these markets are somewhat illiquid, hard to -- you know, hard to get out. big pools of money invested. and a lot of the investors who sort of chase yield and chase returns to the people who are heavily invested in etf or the hedge fund are now dumping those
shares. that is having abit of a domino effect, as you say. but our sense, probably closer to the end than the meaning. gerri: that's it here. i have to tell you, a lot of the folks on my show and you have heard some of these people say this, they are expecting a 10% correction. could this be the beginning? >> it could be. juneau's. the question is what do you on personally? we look at the u.s. stock market it is priced to yield about 4 percent over the next decade, but individual areas of the stock market we think are priced to actually deliver a higher yield than that. so we go where the value is. this could be a catalyst for correction. a healthy correction because of whre we have gone so quickly. gerri: here is what i am concerned about. earnings just not looking that's terrific right now.
