Oh oh -- they're REALLY getting the rich people now

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — Duke Energy has agreed to a 7.2 percent rate increase for its customers in North Carolina, cutting its initial proposal in half.

The Charlotte Observer reports that the utility agreed in principle on Tuesday to the limited increase with the N.C. Utilities Commission's Public Staff, which represents customers. The agreement gives each of Duke's major customer classes - residential, industrial and commercial - the same 7.2 percent increase. More here:

Ha ha, don't worry ... this rate increase doesn't apply to you, right?  Those poor Duke Energy customers/saps.  Once they get their increase the other companies will probably not even take notice.  They won't apply for their own rate increase, will they?

Keep voting for Democratics people who are blocking coal, natural gas, etc etc. -- it's working out just fine.  They're peeling you for all you're worth.
