Not I....my thermostat is set at a comfortable 68 degrees, and my well-insulated home with energy-efficient appliances and windows doesn't cost me much at all.

My guess is some small changes...closing off and not heating rooms you don't use, putting plastic on drafty windows, turning down a thermostat (or buying a programmable one), wearing heavier clothes, snuggling under blankets, and blowing additional foam insulation into your walls (all inexpensive fixes, by the way) would help lower those bills.
