Has anyone else gotten price gauged this last bill for March? I've been paying $80.00-$90.00 all through the winter months. I got a heating credit of $220.00 because I have a child at home (taxes). Nothing, absolutely nothing, has changed in this household. We have even turned the heat down & have plastic on all the windows. Now, I got a bill for $139.00 for March! What is gong on?
I don't get child support & manage every single dollar wisely to stay off of any kind of welfare.
If this has happened to you call them & complain. I did- they had no answer for me. Said it was my fault. The more complaint's the better. Do not let them do this!

Check the other bills to see if they were actual readings or estimated. If they were estimated, and the last one was actual, that would explain the increase.

I did, it was actual. This happened last year too. I remember being told March was a cold month. At this time last year we already had 60-70 degree weather.
Our gas company here got in trouble before for over charging customer's. They were ordered to put a cap on there prices for a couple of years. As soon as it lifted they gauged everybody. They got caught again, lowered the bills & had to give some people refunds.

I'm meant their prices. I think it might be happening again. I hope I hear from more people. Maybe something can be done. If they've tried it once, I'm sure they would try again. The gauging they got caught doing was many years ago. I guess it's time for them to catch up.
