It’s not a designer handbag, it’s natural gas!

Jason Knowles, a sharp reporter for ABC 7’s I-Team, did a hard-hitting report this week on high natural gas rates from unregulated suppliers in the Chicago region. Jason’s interview with a consumer whose gas bill skyrocketed featured this wonderful quote:

“It’s not a designer handbag that you can charge what you choose. This is a commodity that you have to have.” 

Right on! That’s the kind of thing that CUB has been saying for years. Illinois consumers need natural gas, and choosing a supplier shouldn’t be like a high-stakes game of Russian roulette.
