How can APCO ask for another increase from the people? How can they ask for this seeing how hard times are for people. It needs to stop at some point. Folks are having such hards times making ends meet. We need folks to stand up against these increases. Where can we make our voices heard? Help someone gives the answer so our voices will be hear. Make topixs a good thing for people to come together and fight. Spread the word .

The ceo and everyone else high up with 6 or 7 figure salaries (or more) need to take pay cuts. Thats the problem with our country, corporate America. There is no limit on how much profit these companies can make from NECESSARY things (gas, electricity, etc) so they price gaug (sp) and make killer profit while hard working, blue collar people struggle to pay their bills and put food on the table.

AEP does not care how hard it makes it on us to pay a bill. We have to have electricity, so they keep trying to increase the price. At first they wanted a high percentage of increase and when the Public Service Commission wouldn't grant that, they broke it down to smaller percentages and keeps asking for the increase, so eventually they will get the originial increase they wanted. They, like many other companies, only look out for themselves.

Yes they do and I totally agree corporate greed is a problem with APCO and every company in America.

Cuts need to be made in EVERY company from the top down-prices for necessities cannot continue to support the corporate penthouse waste.
