From the news:
Starting on January 1, 40- and 60-watt incandescent light bulbs will no longer be allowed to be imported into or manufactured in the U.S. These bulbs, which are highly inefficient and waste about 90 percent of their energy giving off heat rather than light, make up over half of all light bulbs purchased in the country.
Over the past two years, 75-watt and 100-watt incandescent bulbs have been phased out as part of the Energy Independence and Security Act enacted in 2007 under the Bush Administration.
Better start hoarding them! I detest compact fluorescent light...so I'm grabbing as much as I can.
