Missouri Gas Energy wants a $23 million rate hike. It says the increase is needed to help with pipeline and service line costs, lines that bring warmth to homes and business. The energy company says if the Missouri Public Service Commission grants its request, residential customers will pay an extra $2.33 a month. That's money some customers believe is not just to build pipelines but to line the pockets of company executives.
