Before you panic to sign up with a fixed rate for the next 12 months, remember since this is a isolated explosion in a neighborhood it should not change the prices on gas or electricity.
If the explosion had been at the cities gas gates the energy market would see a spike in electric rates and gas prices but this was not the situation in Allentown.
