Pain at the Pump Affecting Xcel Customers' Bills

Xcel Energy customers could be paying more for utilities and the company says it's because of the record high gas prices.

Residential and small business customers could see a 10% increase through September.

Natural gas bills could increase an estimated 38% for residential and 58% for small business customers when compared to July of last year.

If the request is approved by the Colorado Public Utilities Commission the new rates would take affect on July 1st.
