JEFFERSON CITY — AmerenUE is raising a charge on the monthly bills of its electric customers in Missouri.

The Missouri Public Service Commission on Thursday approved the utility's request to increase the fuel and purchased-power adjustment charge on customers' bills.

The commission estimates the average residential customer will pay $2.37 more per month starting Sept. 23.

St. Louis-based Ameren is the state's largest electric utility, with about 1.2 million customers mainly in eastern and central Missouri.

Ameren requested that the charge be increased because of lower power prices and declining revenue from sales of electricity to wholesalers amid the economic downturn.

Economic downturn, so Ameren demands you pay for the loss of revenue to them?
If you have a gas bomb pipeline,propane or natural hooked up to your home YOU are an FOOL in the first place, .
All electric one bill! yea your house can still burn down because of faulty wiring, but you can have a peace of mind that the gas company wont blow your house up with to much pressure through the pilot lights on the gas furnaces and or destroy your neighborhood because of poor maintenance on the pipelines.

Centralia, Boonville, St Louis,Missouri look out.
Paranoid? No, just no fool. All electric !
