Dominion Virginia Power Quote

In my most recent bill from Dominion Virginia Power, there was a letter from President David Heacock that opened with this sentence: “We are never eager to seek permission to increase prices for our customers.” The meaning he is hoping we will pick up on is that Dominion doesn’t want to increase prices (18% raise as of July 1st). The meaning I instantly read was they don’t want to seek permission to increase our prices, they’d prefer they could raise prices without asking first.
