Speaking of Rip-Offs (Atlanta Edition) 

I have to use a company called Infinite Energy for my natural gas service. My bill this month included $7.15 in actual energy costs (amount used), a $5.95 "customer service charge" and a $15.95 "base charge," which is apparently charged by the Atlanta Gas Light Company, which actually sells the gas but not directly.

So, for my $7.15 worth of energy used, I'm paying $21.90 in fees. That's more than THREE TIMES my use cost. No wonder energy company stocks are so safe!
