    Obama Delivers on Promise to Make Electricity Prices Skyrocket

    Millions of Americans are dealing with skyrocketing electricity prices and it looks like costs will be going even higher.

    CNSNews.com reported on information released by the Bureau of Labor Statistics:

    The average price for a kilowatthour (KWH) of electricity hit a March record of 13.5 cents, according data released yesterday by the Bureau of Labor Statistics. That was up about 5.5 percent from 12.8 cents per KWH in March 2013.

    The relative price of electricity in the United States tends to rise in spring, peak in summer, and decline in fall. Last year, after the price of a KWH averaged 12.8 cents in March, it rose to an all-time high of 13.7 cents in June, July, August and September.

    If the prevailing trend holds, the average price of a KWH would hit a new record this summer.

    Let’s not forget, President Obama promised to make electricity prices skyrocket and they are!
