The utility will charge average users 60 cents a month extra on their electric bills for the next three years -- $21.60 all together. That covers the cost of the bulbs ($3.50 each), their delivery and the delivery of the power consumers would have used if they didn't have them.

Those companies used to charge between $6-$9 a gallon if they had to fill up the tank if you chose not to as part of the rental agreement. $6-$9 a gallon when the price of a gallon of gas was $1.50.Part of their argument was well we have to pay an employee to go gas the car up, which takes time etc... It takes 3 minutes to fill up a tank, and they had the gas pumps at their facility.
