Power Prices in California

Scott Horsley of member station KPBS in San Diego reports on findings by Federal Regulators on this past summer's surge in electricity prices in the area. Some San Diego residents had power bills that were three-times higher than usual. Regulators say the blame lies with how California deregulated its power market, and have suggested some changes to keep prices in line.
