Wickipedia needs updating . . . . or else NYC electricity is more than double that of the rest of the state
Hawaii has by far the most expensive electricity prices in the United States. The average cost of electricity in the first nine months of 2012 was $0.34 per kilowatt-hour, more than double the cost in the next-highest state (New York: $0.16) and more than triple the US average of $0.10 per kilowatt-hour.
I can understand the price in Hawaii
In 2008 Hawaii's primary energy consumption by source was:
85.0% petroleum, down from 99.7% in 1960
0.1% natural gas
7.8% renewable energy
Isn't natural gas lots cheaper than burning petroleum?
I'll bet NYC residents are paying an exorbitant tax rate the rest of the states residents aren't paying
