EL PASO- At the end of this month you may notice your electric bill will be a little higher.
El Paso Electric tells us they have "interim approval" from the Public Utility Commission to add a fuel charge of $1.55 to each household bill, monthly.
They say an increase in the price of natural gas and in energy consumption are to blame.
If this measure is signed, which is likely, you'll see the increase on your August bill.
