A State Representative is asking the Utility Regulatory Commission to come to Evansville and hold a public hearing on Vectren’s plan to hike its natural gas rates. Gail Riecken says she's "understandably leery" whenever utilities want to increase rates, and is looking out for those on fixed incomes. Riecken says if approved, the increase starting next year would initially be up to $1.50 a month for an average customer.
