2013 AARP Survey of Illinois Adults age 18+: Summary of Opinions on Natural Gas Rates and Legislation

Natural gas companies in Illinois are proposing annual automatic rate increases over the next 10 years to help fund infrastructure and non-infrastructure improvements beyond what is already required by law.  This survey shows strong opposition to this proposal across two key demographics: income and political party. 

The overwhelming majority (71%) of Illinoisans oppose the state’s leading natural gas companies’ proposal to raise customer rates for extra infrastructure and non-infrastructure improvements beyond what is required by law.  

Further, Illinois natural gas customers do not believe their state officials are doing enough to lower the cost of their natural gas bills (61%).  And, along with electric utility customers, they do not believe their interests are represented and taken into consideration when rate increases are proposed (60%).

AARP commissioned Precision Opinion to field this RDD survey between May 4, 2013 and May 12, 2013.  This state survey yielded 800 completed interviews and the final sample was weighted by age and gender of Illinoisans age 18 and older. Contact Jennifer Sauer for questions about this survey at jsauer@aarp.org.
