Temperatures are expected to drop AGAIN this week. (Anyone else reminded of the movie Groundhog Day?) Wednesday might see lows between 0 and -10 degrees with a wind chill of -20 degrees to -30 degrees!
The cold spike is expected to have some nasty consequences for your gas bill. Nicor’s preliminary March figures predict a 33 percent jump in supply rates from last month! CUB issued a news release and spoke to WGN on the potential price spike yesterday.
