Pull out the Pocketbook:
In the Feb 27,2008 TFP issue- Editor’s Corner- Marie Williams-Gagnon writes “Families in rural comunities will see their Hyrdo One delivery charges jump as high as 35% over the next 4 years, depending where they live.”
“Pull out the pocket book.” This is an understatment. I am afraid that energy charges and increases are going to bankrupt this country severly affecting the lives of many who can not and will not be able to afford the increases.
