There are lots of other utility companies out there with a much higher PE ratio. I don't understand why this one isn't already higher than it is. That cold blast is causing people everywhere to use a lot more energy to heat with for sure. I am almost in the Gulf of Mexico in Texas and it dropped to freezing temperatures here also. My heater has run more the last couple of days than I can remember in many years. I am certain my bill will be triple what it was last month.
