Texas energy crisis and AZ gas customers

I checked to see if this story had posted at DU..this awful time in Texas does have far reaching consequences. I am so sorry for the Texans suffering..


Natural gas users in the city are asked to help conserve supply by turning off indoor and outdoor fireplaces and fire pits as well as pool and spa heaters; reduce the time taken for showers; turn down the temperature thermostat, minizine the use of gas-fueled outdoor lighting and shorten the number of time doors are opened and closed

Mesa couldn't estimate how much the price spikes would affect customers but said that because its suppliers in Texas couldn't meet their contracts this week, the city was forced to buy from the spot market at prices "7,000%" of the normal rate.

2. Even prices at the pump have went nuts here

The invisible hand of the free market, as it reaches into our collective bank accounts.
