The incandescent light bulb is being phased out and replaced with its more-expensive LED and CFL siblings. Where do you stand?

Standard incandescent bulbs were effectively killed off by the 2007 energy bill signed by then-President George W. Bush.

When consumers balked at higher costs, General Electric, Sylvania, and Phillips turned to the government to mandate regulations in their favor.
