TXU (that’s the electric company if you’re in Texas) has asked the Utility Commission to authorize a rate hike (as if they didn’t charge enough already) becuse of increased fuel costs. It’s not their fault fuel costs have gone up but I already hate them. Commy bastards.

From the San Jose paper:

TXU Energy is asking the state Public Utility Commission for permission to raise rates by 24 percent – an average monthly increase of about $30 – by January, a TXU Energy spokesman says.

TXU also asked the commission Tuesday to allow it to raise rates about 12 percent – equal to about $15 each month – through the end of the year. That increase would go into effect by early November.

The news (TV) said our rates were going to double. :dead:

“Oh, my goodness,” Tim Morstad, an analyst with the Consumers Union, a nonprofit consumer advocate, told The Dallas Morning News as he began leafing through TXU’s filing Tuesday. “Wow, this is very, very high.”

NO SHIT??? :wtf:
