(Bismarck, ND) -- North Dakotans are facing skyrocketing utility costs.

Higher fuel prices are increasing gas and electric bills as residents struggle to keep their homes heated.

Costs for new power generation facilities and wind farms are also being passed on to consumers.

January is typically the coldest month of the year in North Dakota.
