As I do every month, I review my bills before paying them. Over and above the usual disgust in reviewing how much it costs to live, it struck me that my Direct Energy natural gas bill is outrageous.
The gas I used is $37 and my bill is $108. Doing the math, I am paying 290 per cent more than the gas I actually used! It’s unconscionable and practically untenable to live a normal city life. I really empathize for people on a fixed income.
