I live in northwest ohio and I can tell my electricity rates have already" necessarily skyrocketed"!! When we moved here in 2005 my electric bill was 250-300 per month for a 3100sf victorian home. Now in 2012 my bill runs 500-600 a month couple that with my skyrocketing food costs and I'll be able to "qualify" for that free obama phone by christmas!!!!
