But that’s the report I woke up to. Top local news story, it’s cold. Later on I heard this story:
In a series of complex transactions hidden from state regulators, Peoples Gas transferred or sold natural gas intended to heat Chicagoans' homes to a venture of its parent company and Enron Corp., internal documents show.
As a result, the utility was forced to replenish gas supplies at high prices on the open market, contributing to record heating bills for customers during the brutally cold winter of 2000-2001.
