As of January of this year the U.S. Energy Administration’s State Electricity Profiles showed the national average retail price per kilowatt hour to be just under 10 cents (9.83). Missouri was at 7.78 cents and Kansas at 8.35 placing them in the top 18 states with the lowest prices for electricity.</p> Thu, 06 Sep 2012 04:16:56 +0000 Stephen Steigman 24028 at http://kcur.org Electricity Infrastructure & Security
