PSC is more to blame than Duke

I write regarding the article that indicates Duke will raise rates, while Tampa Electric will reduce rates. Duke's rates are already the highest in the state, and they want more. Actually, I don't blame Duke. Many businesses would like to raise rates, except for competition. The blame should fall on our Public Service Commission. It has taught Duke:

"Ask and ye shall receive."
