The likely cost of an Ohio-only greenhosue gas program to consumers and businesses -- $63.2 billion -- can be divided by the number of hosueholds 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 policymakers. There were 4.5 million households in Ohio in 2000, so the cost per household could be $14,205.
