Energy Costs Strain Nation's Poorest
Using Missouri as an indicator, a new report from the National Low Income Energy Consortium decries the cost of household energy for the nation's poor. In order to afford basic levels of heat and electricity, some Americans have to take drastic steps leading to ill health, malnutrition, and overall household transience. The group hopes to bring attention to this national problem at a conference in St. Louis this week.
