A cold winter for the poor and aged?

Lots of media coverage of rising costs of natural gas and home heating oil as winter approaches. Some suggestions today on Al Tompkins Morning Meeting at Makes me wonder what aging angles there are? The federal government, with programs like the Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program, has had energy assistance programs since before Jimmy Carter's MEOW (the "Moral Equivalent of War") about energy conversation. Are governments, utilities and communities ready to help the poor and aged? Anyone written about this yet? Please post thoughts, links in comments.
