When the dwelling unit is heated electrically, the maximum amount allowed for heating purposes will be calculated by multiplying the number of gallons of fuel allowed for that month by the current price per gallon.
 When fuels such as wood, coal and/or natural gas are used for heating purposes, they will be budgeted at actual rates, if they are reasonable. However, no eligible applicant shall be considered to need more than:
·       7 tons of coal per year
·       8 cords of wood per year
·       126,000 cubic feet of natural gas per year, or
·       1000 gallons of propane.
