Left Fog Bulb Blowing

I got my car in July '11. Sometime about a year ago I got a pair of Putco 3000k bulbs to put in there and saved the factory bulbs. The Putco on the left side went out in June or July this year. "Fine", I thought, knowing these aftermarket bulbs only have about a one year lifespan. So I replaced them with the factory bulbs I saved. This morning I discover again the left bulb is blown. I only have just over 17,000 miles on the car and I don't run my fogs all the time. I mainly use them as DRLs on long highway trips (or in fog/snow). Since they're the same power as the headlights and I haven't had a problem with them yet I think I may have an electrical issue going to this bulb. What's anybody else think? Anybody else have this problem?

Only on my 2002 Escape. I figured it was because of my terrible suspension issues that caused that side of the car to see more clunks/vibrating/etc. No idea on your new baby.
