The least expensive rate for natural gas in Casper has been, seems to be now and appears to be for the future, the pass-on, regulated rate provided by Black Hills Gas Distribution, LLC. This is the only supplier whose pricing and advertising practices are regulated by the PUC. And even Black Hills Energy has set up a separate, unregulated arm, called Black Hills Energy Services, to take advantage of the lack of regulation, which has resulted in customers routinely paying prices of 35 cents per therm or more through the unregulated suppliers, when the pass on/regulated rate has been well below 30 cents. Asking for and instituting this program was a mistake we all made....but we can change it by simply not patronizing the suppliers who are using deceptive and confusing advertising practices to sell us gas well above the regulated rate. If anyone should know just how cheap natural gas should be, it's us....don't you think?
