ILLINOIS (RFD) — The Citizen’s Utility Board is warning all Illinoisans this winter could be a pricey one. The utility watchdog is keeping an eye on gas and electric rates and says we are facing the possibility of hundreds of dollars in higher heating bills this winter due to skyrocketing natural gas prices and aggressive utility spending.
CUB spokesman Jim Chilsen says supply rates went up again on November 1, with major utilities charging about double 2020 prices.
The Citizens Utility Board has launched an online help center to advise gas customers on how to soften the blow of these potentially crippling price increases. www.cubhelpcenter.com
