People’s Gas Wants Higher Rates

Jun 22, 2009

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.
