DTE Energygas bill increase

B

Just when life can't possibly get any worse, I just received my dte energy gas bill today. Normally I pay $40 per month for gas but my bill has dramatically increased to $167.00 per month. According to dte energy, there was a & ldquo;gas rate change” and I have to pay it or they will shut it off. Crazy right, I don't recall ever receiving a notice from dte energy letting me know my gas bill would be over 4x’s what I use to pay per month. This is just so wrong, I am unemployed right now in michigan like many others. Talk about kicking somebody when their down... God knows I will be boiling water real soon. If anyone can shed some light on this subject, it would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
Michelle in trenton michigan

    File a complaint with the The Michigan Public Service Commission (MPSC) If enough people file their complaints against DTE Energy and DTE Energy has to pay enough fines they will start treating their customers the right way: To Submit Natural Gas Utility Inquiry or Complaint http://www.dleg.state.mi.us/mpsc/gas/gascomplaint.html and to Submit Electric Utility Inquiry or Complaint http://www.dleg.state.mi.us/mpsc/electric/eleccomplaint.html
