Questions about Avista


Avista continues to charge $0.81690 per therm for natural gas while, since 2008, the market price has dropped to $0.198 per therm.

The market price has dropped 35 percent so far this year. Have you seen your gas bill drop 35 percent? The answer is no.

Where are our state regulators? Where is the press on this gouging issue? Why has the price of electricity not dropped as well?

Avista uses natural gas to generate electricity. If the cost of gas drops, then it costs less to generate electricity.
