The likely cost of an Alabama-only greenhouse gas program to consumers and businesses -- $22.9 billion -- can be divided by the number of households in the state to reveal the cost per household of a typical greenhouse gas program. There were 1.7 million households in Alabama in 2000, so the cost per household could be $13,157.
