Utility Bills Sky High?

Electric bill sky high? You’re not alone. AARP South Dakota recently held a telephone townhall on the issue of utilities. During the call, many participants relayed their struggles with increasing utility costs while living on a fixed income. Many of those who responded indicated affording their utility bill was a minor or major concern.
