Title: 40% electric rate hike
: Marin Independent Journal
Date: March 28, 2001
About this cartoon: The energy crisis deriving from power deregulation had the big providers (PG&E and Southern California Edison) screaming they were being squeezed dry. The governor and the Public Utilities Commission decided to "spread the pain" to the tune of consumer rate hikes of about 40 percent.
Noteworthy: Still working on getting Gray Davis drawn right. The animation of the figure on the left, though, is something I've been able to do well for most of my career.
