There are lots of additional taxes and fees also. The state of WV and the cities are riding this gravy train also. The more the gas customers pay, the more taxes and fees they get to collect. That may be why they could care less. They will care when it wrecks our economy. You know, the electric company may have a valid excuse for raising rates. The rate they pay for Nat gas increased also although most all WV power plants still use only coal for fuel.
