With the trendy movement by politicians (most recently Gov. Hochul in New York) wanting to jump on the bandwagon to ban natural gas, propane and heating oil from new construction I figured now is a good time to sound off.
Natural gas, propane, heating oil, and even wood for some folks in Bucks County with a wood burning furnace, and electric companies, have one sure thing in common- they compete for your dollars to heat a home and cook food. Competition means consumers get the best price for the product.
Take a way competition and the result is a monopoly. Banning all forms of energy for homes and businesses except electricity will give electric companies a monopoly. I can’t think of an industry I’d rather not see with a price monopoly than an electric company.
