Minnesotans' heating bills could be $400 higher because of Southern storm
February 24, 2021
Minnesotans will pay up to $400 more for their February heating bills because of the spike in U.S. gas prices after a historic cold wave hit the South.
That was the word Tuesday from the state's largest gas utilities at a special meeting called by the Minnesota Public Utilities Commission (PUC) to examine the surge in gas prices. The PUC voted to start a formal investigation.
"We have many questions and few concrete answers," said Katie Sieben, the PUC's chairwoman.
