The Idaho utilities telephone survey examines the opinions of 50+ residents on their experiences with their utilities including electricity, heating, and gas. According to the survey, 50+ residents are concerned about the costs of heating their home going up. Further, the majority finds paying their electric and gas bills difficult (48% find it extremely difficult, 28% find it very difficult), and most believe their elected officials are not doing enough to help with these increasing costs. Many support establishing a consumer advocate office (40% strongly support, 28% somewhat support).
