Quick add on gas rates 

Stephen Karlson has a much more rigorous treatment of the question of gas rates that I addressed to Leo. If you want to wade into it, you'll do well to follow his link to this. After that, be sure to read Dale's comment about the conversion of our coal burners to natural gas for electricity production. That would not necessarily be a problem for the pricing strategy Xcel wants to use, as I understand it, but it does challenge the notion that we will use less natural gas going forward.
