This iReport is part of an assignment:
Surging gas prices
Gas Prices on Tinian
We also have to pay for power. We pay for the amount of power that we consume and we also pay for a Levelized Energy Adjustment Clause (LEAC). Which technically it means a fuel charge. My recent power bill was $158. Please keep in mind that I don't have an air conditioner, water heater, washing machine. I have disconnected my dryer, electric range/oven. I have changed all of my lights to fluorescent lights. I'm also using portable gas stoves and electric fans for cooking and to keep our home cool.
It been tough but we are hanging in there. I just miss the days of pay for 2.50 a gallon.
