   Instead of $1,000 a month...$2,500?  Really?

Environmental Protection Agency policies resulting in the shutdown of coal-fired power plants will contribute to a 150 percent price hike for natural gas, accompanied by a 7 percent rise in electricity prices, according to government data.

The U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA) projects that the accelerating rate of coal plant retirements will cause natural gas prices to rise from $3.44 per million British thermal units (Btu) in 2012 to $5.91 per million Btu in 2025. This would boost retail electricity rates for households and businesses from 9.8 cents per kilowatthour to 10.5 cents per kilowatthour a 7 percent price jump by 2025.

Gas and power prices are driven even higher by 2040 as more coal plants are shuttered. Natural gas prices will increase 150 percent over 2012 levels and retail power prices will rise 22 percent over 2012 levels as more coal plants are retired.
