Cortez said the fact that temperatures for most of June was 97 degrees or hotter
and the price of natural gas skyrocketing 60 percent higher than last summer
were big reasons for the high bills.
My bill is $74 more than last month. And my wife starts her month-long summer vacation today, so she and the youngin' will be home all day.
I can handle the price of gasoline by riding my bicycle or motorcycle to work, but it's the light bill hikes, and milk prices that sting. Damnit.
