I've seen a lot of greed and shady dealing, but THIS takes the cake!

I've been with Nicor Advanced Energy for several years, and I expect higher gas bills in winter. I've previously has bills as high as $500.00 to heat my place, which is big with high ceilings. But the bill I got this month is absolutely beyond the pale!

My gas bill last month was $466.01 for usage of 481.44 therms. Cost per them was a fiarly steep 78 cents per therm. High, but I can handle it...

But THEN...


THIS month - Usage of 565.08 therms. Not much higher, but it's been cold, right? I was charged $863.11, AT A RATE OF $1.34 PER THERM!!! Yep, you heard that right.

Of course I called and asked WTF?!? to which they replied that I am apparently on their "Flex Plan", which uses some byzantine computation to figure my total, resulting in this OUTRAGEOUS and SUDDEN cost hike! I was COMPLETELY blindsided by this...

The customer service rep tried to put the blame on me, of course, but I told him that there's such a thing as fair practice and that I was gone.


You've been warned, kids.
