Out of gas

    Philadelphia Gas Works’ CEO will step down early next year. Thomas Knudsen has been CEO since 2001.
    Knuden’s successor will be current Chief Operating Officer Craig White, the Inquirer reports. A three-year contract for White is set for a vote Tuesday with the Philadelphia Gas Commission. Since Mayor Nutter and the Philadelphia Facilities Management Corp. have already approved White, the gas commission’s vote is the last obstacle.
