Residents of many communities in Florida recently received the news that their electric rates will DECREASE due to the decline in the cost of energy production because of the decline in natural gas costs....In related news, cities up north, who rely on COAL and non green fuel sources, have applied for rate increases, all the while pretending they are green, but NOT. Baggage handlers and folks who rely on tourism for their employment are concerned about the effect on their jobs of airlines hitting passengers with fees for additional luggage etc. It seems to them that many tourists are choosing to DRIVE...or just vacation locally. One Florida resident mentioned to me that he loved living in Florida, except that it was kind of like living in a gated community where everything has been abandoned.
