The only real answer to this kind of financial rip off — and all the others; it’s just # 1001 — is to rehabilitate (to use the medical term; appropriate) the average person’s political muscle which INHERENTLY means rehabilitate the average person’s only labor market bargaining mechanism EN MASSE — only way to do that being LEGALLY MANDATED, CENTRALIZED BARGAINING (what else? :-]).
Just like exporting refined oil products to keep gasoline supplies tight here at home. We must remember, the goal of energy companies is to make money, not supply energy. Energy is simply the means to the end for them.
