People’s Gas wants the Illinois Commerce Commission to let it raise rates so that the average gas bill of Chicagoans would go up by $12 a month. Gas bills are already too high. People’s Gas paid its CEO Thomas Patrick $1,134,543 last year. And it wants the rates to be set so it can have a rate of profit of 12% after taxes.
No! Roll back the gas prices, don’t raise them.
