Shock Tactics

The Atmosphere Is Electric

A British mother-of-two opened her electricity bill - to find a demand for the $180 million. Alison Turner was stunned when she opened the bill - the equivalent of leaving lights on for 1,900 years. "It's lucky they didn't send it to a pensioner, they might have keeled over."

So would you say the electric company almost had that woman backed into a coroner?

The way energy prices are rising here bills like that will not be mistakes in the future! Gas prices are set to rise by 40% this year.
