Pepco wants to delay a ruling on raising Maryland customer's electric bills.

Pepco asked regulators to approve a four percent rate hike in Maryland meaning that the average residential bill would increase by $5.50.

The Maryland Public Service Commission was expected to announce its decision by this Friday, but Pepco filed a last-minute request to delay the decision another week.

This comes at a bad time for the utility company.

Pepco has been under fire for taking more than a week to restore power to hundreds of thousands of customers from this month's storms.
