'American Coyotes' Series

Traveling by Jeep, boat and foot, Tribune-Review investigative reporter Carl Prine and photojournalist Justin Merriman covered nearly 2,000 miles over two months along the border with Mexico to report on coyotes — the human traffickers who bring illegal immigrants into the United States. Most are Americans working for money and/or drugs. This series reports how their operations have a major impact on life for residents and the environment along the border — and beyond.

Consumers can see how their natural gas utility's rate compares to other suppliers' prices on PAGasSwitch, an online feature from the state Public Utility Commission.

Gas suppliers and their offers are listed for each utility's service territory on the www.puc.pa.gov website, the regulatory agency said on Monday.

In the Pittsburgh area, Columbia Gas of Pennsylvania has 14 competing offers to its rate of 42.79 cents per therm of gas. Peoples Natural Gas Co. has three alternate suppliers in its territory, and Equitable Gas and Peoples TWP have none.

Consumers have had the ability to choose a gas supplier other than their local utility since 1999.

The state lists electric choices at www.papowerswitch.com.
