Energy Bill Could Help Wyoming

Laramie, Wy – The head of Wyoming's office of Consumer advocate is hopeful that congress can revive the energy bill. Bryce Freeman says it would be good news for consumers and would increase production, which in turn would keep heating costs and other energy prices in check. "We are probably not going to be able to conserve ourselves out of a production problem" says Freeman. He says the last 4 or 5 years has led to increased consumer demands for such things as electricity. Freeman says more development is needed to help address the issue.
