DON'T SUCK GAS---AGAIN
March 07, 2012
You've done it at the gas
pump. Refuse to do it in your furnace!
Our suppliers are saving big
time. Why is it not being passed through to consumers?
CAN make a difference!

Five year history of
Natural Gas Prices
Falling natural gas prices,
which have dropped far below a December (2005) peak of
nearly $15.00 per million British thermal units, have
prompted some energy companies to curtail production to
keep prices high.
Natural gas futures at the close,
November 16, 2010 were trading at $3.82.
That is nearly
the December 2005 price, a 70% DROP! So why are we
still paying the high prices triggered by the sharp
increases experienced in December 2005????
Local natural gas utilities
are beginning to respond, realizing that these savings
must AT LEAST APPEAR to be passed on to the consumer.
Gas prices at the wholesale level are one fourth what they were December 2005. NATURAL GAS PRICES AT THE WHOLESALE LEVEL
HAVE BEEN REDUCED about 70% since December 2005 FOR OUR
GAS COMPANIES. This is an outrage. The consumer who has
been gouged at the gasoline pump for the last few years
should not sit and take another gouging at the basement
The new game of suppliers
is to sharply raise the "distribution rates". This is
just another unjustified way to gouge the customer.
state legislators need to hear from you today.
REGULATE what the gas company can charge you for
their gas. This
is very different than how gasoline prices are set.
Regulators are controlled by your elected officials.
Email, or snail mail your elected officials today and
tell them you will not stand for another gouging. Go to
, look at the State and Local Government Resources
section. In the left hand column you will see
three sections in RED. Click on those links and you will
be able to find the folks in your state who can do
something about it. This is a powerful weapon. Good luck
to us all. I am emailing my Governor, state senator and
don't let your elected officials see this, or a similar
article, then don't complain when that big fat gas bill
arrives in the mail.
