$47.28 for 171 kwh's of electricity. That includes $3.34 in taxes. That is almost 28 cents a kwh.
The two places I lived previously for the same amount of usage the bills would have been around $16 and $22.
And no body gave a shit at least the ones I spoke with about the impending increase. And for me this particular bill because it's such a small amount is over a 30% increase from the previous rate structure. Last time I called propane was $4.50 a gallon. On 9/19/13 when I filled it was $2.35. I don't know how people can do it if they don't have options about heating.
It's -7 and I'm burning wood like crazy. Next winter I'm outta here and want to miss as much of this as possible. It's a health and mental issue for me. I'm going to try anyway.
My money says there's some crimes happening when you see shit like this. Capitalism will NOT be denied.
