CUB Challenges Peoples Gas Proposed Rate Hike

A consumer advocacy is working to reduce Peoples Gas’ record rate hike request.  The Citizens Utility Board is petitioning state regulators to slash the proposed increase by more than 100-million dollars.  In January, Peoples Gas filed for a 402-million dollar increase in the rates it charges to deliver the heating fuel to homes.  The proposal would raise delivery rates by an average of more than 12 dollars per month.
