It is time to protest local natural gas rates


The Logo of the Clarksville, TN Gas and Water Department

The city-owned Clarksville Gas & Water is unconscionably raising our gas rates, without warning or explanation, and local media is not reporting on it. My January bill was at a rate of 34 cents per 100 cubic feet, and my February bill was at 51 cents per 100 cubic feet, which was a 50% increase over January’s bill. Now my March bill is at a rate of 68 cents per 100 cubic feet, which is a 100% increase over January’s bill! How much must CG&W charge us in order to create massive public backlash? Please join me, as I am ready to protest now!
