The likely cost of a North Carolina-only greenhouse gas program to consumers and businesses -- $22.7 billion -- can be divided by the number of households in the state to reveal the cost per household of a typical greenhosue gas program. The actual costs would vary depending on choices made by policymkaers. There were 3.1 million households in North Carolina in 2000, so the cost per household could be $7,249.
