Guam - The Public Utilities Commission approved the Levelized Energy Adjustment Clause adjustment to the fuel surcharge for the average residential monthly bill during last night's regular meeting. PUC legal counsel Fred Horecky tells KUAM News the adjustment came in a two-phase approach which effective now until March 31, the LEAC will go down slightly at about $0.24 on your bill.

But after that until July the LEAC will go up resulting in a slight increase of $0.09 in your monthly bill. Horecky adds although GPA and the CCU's original petition submitted in December equated to a decrease of roughly $5, the projections for the fuel price for the February to July time period changed and actually went up.
