Winter Heating Costs Tax Poor and Elderly

No matter what the exact price of heating oil is per gallon this winter, bills will still have to be paid and they will be much higher than last winter.

To consider what's in store in Boston for the poor and elderly as the cold weather approaches, Bob Oakes speaks with John Drew, executive vice president of the advocacy group Action for Boston Community Development. The group helped 15,000 people pay heating bills last winter.

This program aired on October 6, 2005. The audio for this program is not available.
