Vectren Energy Delivery aka Modern Day Extortion

Got Natural Gas??? Anyone who knows me or reads this blog knows I stop posting now and then due to being bummed out over bills and things getting disconnected. Here is a perfect example of WHY. Natural gas sux, this is my latest bill!

Well damn, blogger resizing makes it hard to read.(You can click on it for a larger image) My last month's charges were $545.81, this month was a bargain at ONLY $479.23. Exactly how do they expect people to pay for this shit? I got lucky this time around, I just got my income tax return. Unfrotunately most of it is going to these assholes, yet its better than having no heat I guess. I think its important that I note Im not an old lady or heat freak and dont have my thermostat set at 80 or 90 degrees. It usually sits between 68 and 70. I think its a reasonable temp and dont see how someone can charge you that much to keep from freezing to death! Nevermind the fact that the gas itself is so expensive, I am also being charged $75 a month for DISTRIBUTION and SERVICE charges??? What the fuck is that? What service? The meter reader guy that comes out to the house? I wonder if HE knows he should be making $75 per meter read? These people are completely assinine. I suppose a lot of people are probably ranting about these bills. But I also live in a smaller and poor area. I remember last year when a whole family died in a fire because their gas had been shut off so they were reduced to using cheap space heaters. When the head of this company was interviewed, he stated that the family that had perished didn't qualify for assistance because they did not possess the proper paperwork when they applied. PAPERWORK.....

I had natural gas when I lived in Tennessee. I used it during the winter when it was ass-biting cold and my bill was NEVER that high. Gas is cheaper than electric. I would call them and tell them that there is a leak somewhere. That's absolutly ridiculous.

FYI- I paid around 50.00 a month for a 3/2 house. Something's gotta be wrong there.

You can always try to whore yourself in the corners... if that doesnt work just fax a copy of your bill to your governor with a note... HOW THE FUCK DO I PAY FOR THIS SHIT!

Why don't people just take the paperwork and light it on fire for heat. Or they can be like me and heat themselves with a constant undying rage.

Should we cry with you?
Here's a thought--get a newer house. It's not Vectren's fault that you use too much gas anymore than it's the grocery store's fault that someone eats too much. Take responsibility for your own life. I have a 1500 square foot house and my average for the year (for gas AND electric) is only $110. Move out of the poor section of town, clean up your language (you try to sound decent but your language betrays you) and stop complaining to others about your own problems.

By the way--how old is your house and how many square feet and what appliances do you have that run off gas?

By the way--Vectren doesn't make a penny off the cost of gas. That "WTF" comment (designed to illicit sympathy but just reveals that you're a jerk who can't use decent language) is where Vectren Energy Delivery gets its money. The rest is the gas you used, the profit of which does not go to Vectren.

I also notice a lot of people saying they qualify for assistance but are too lazy or too proud to get off their rumps and get it. Is this Vectren's fault? I make a decent salary, but if I could just complain and get assistance (without any paperwork) then why wouldn't I? It's the paperwork that makes sure the money gets to those who need it, not just those who want it. Get real. Stop the poverty mentality.

Good day, sun shines!
There have were times of troubles when I didn't know about opportunities of getting high yields on investments. I was a dump and downright pessimistic person.
I have never imagined that there weren't any need in big initial investment.
Nowadays, I feel good, I begin take up real income.
It's all about how to choose a proper partner who utilizes your funds in a right way - that is incorporate it in real business, and shares the income with me.

You may ask, if there are such firms? I'm obliged to tell the truth, YES, there are. Please get to know about one of them:
