I received my bill from Southwest Gas the other day. While looking it over, I found that it was over $5.00 higher than it usually is. Assuming that a mistake had been made, I called Southwest Gas.
While speaking with the Representative, I got the shock of my life. It seems that the Arizona Corporate Commission and Southwest Gas have conspired to ROB the people of Arizona in an attempt to keep the gas company’s profits high.
This is the way it works. If we have a cold winter and people use the normal amount of gas that they usually use, they are only charged for what they use.
BUT, if we have a warmer than normal winter and gas use is low, The Corporate Commission has given Southwest Gas permission to add a “sur-charge” of more than $5.00.
To the best of my knowledge, this was NEVER put on the ballot for the public to vote on. It was NEVER announced to the public. The people of Arizona NEVER had a say in the matter. Just the usual “BEHIND CLOSED DOORS DEAL.”
And now my question is;
DID SOMEONE GET PAID TO MAKE THIS HAPPEN AND IF SO, WHO.
