Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) - This winter could put a bigger dent in your pocketbook.

Prices for natural gas, electricity and propane heating are expected to be higher. Homes using natural gas will pay about 13% more than a year ago.

Those using electricity will pay about 2% more.

Nationally, it could affect those on heating assistance.

In 2010, Congress set aside $5.1 billion for heating assistance.
