The utility said infrastructure costs led it to file the rate increase, which would raise a typical monthly bill by $2.71.

I didn't get a raise this year. Why should Xcel?! My costs are going up too. Know what? I freakin deal with it. Demanding a raise isn't an option for me.

over 40% below what they were all of last year and they are looking for a rate increase?? SAY WHAT! Most likely with warm the weather and with less utilities being used because of the recession XCcel needs to pump up their sagging earnings and despite having 7 year lows in natural gas prices they think they can get by with a rate increase?? Hope the PUC tells them to take a long walk on a short pier.

No really, stop telling me through billboards and, newspaper ads that I need to "leash my energy use" or what to do if I "smell rotten eggs" or to "stay away from power lines". How much does it cost me every month on my bill to have Xcel tell me how stupid I am???
