    Looking at http://www.lacitysan.org/ http://dpw.lacounty.gov/wwd/web/Docu...teSchedule.pdf I cannot find an LA water charge of more than 2 cents for that last gallon. There are fixed amounts. The last hcf (hundred cubic feet) of water can hit over $8, and the last hcf of sewage can go over $4, but 1 hcf is 748 gallons.

    Maybe I am missing something, but at 75 cents per gallon, people would be building their own solar stills for drinking water and hauling in tanks of water from the ocean to flush with.

    He said 0.75 cents (not 75 cents). His point is that LA should be more expensive than OH, since LA has less water available.

    Yer right. It seems obvious now.

    Yep. There is a lot of water in Lake Erie.

    The electric utilities are doing the same thing as people start to conserve electricity.

    And why stop with the electric company?

    What about the cable provider? your insurance carrier? gas companies? food makers? property tax collectors? ...and the list goes on.

    The last time I was looking in the mirror, I didn't see a cow. Cash Cow that is.
