Hey, free markets know no boundaries. If it makes Washingtonians
feel any better, I just got a gas bill for 230 clams. Normal for this
time of year is about 60, last month was 170, this month, 230. The
subsidized electricity may now actually be cheaper per BTU than gas.
This after years of being encouraged to invest in gas appliances. *sigh*
