The cost of living in the Treasure Valley seems to keep getting higher and higher. Housing has skyrocketed, apartment rent, forget about it, and it hurts every time I drive past a gas station. But there will be some relief for the high cost of living on the way. Soon, some of your Idaho utility bills will decrease.

The Idaho Statesman Reports:

Treasure Valley residents, your utility bills are about to get lower.
Idaho Power customers will see rate drops of just over 7 percent, Suez Water Idaho customers 5.6 percent and Intermountain Gas customers 2.6 percent.

The decreased costs come from federal and state corporate-tax cuts. Average customers will likely see a decrease of $7.04 in their power bill according to the Statesman. With Idaho's hot summers just around the corner (hopefully) this is welcome news and should put a few extra dollars in your pocket. Maybe, you could take that extra money you save and purchase you tickets to the Pre-Bmf-Pool Party at Roaring Springs
