PSC Says Natural Gas Should Be Cheaper This Winter

By Tony McVeigh


Frankfort, KY – Demand for natural gas is down, there's ample supply, storage is at capacity and current prices are 50-percent lower than a year ago. Andrew Melnykovych of the Public Service Commission says, add it all up, and your heating bill this winter should be lower. "For somebody using 10-thousand cubic feet per month, their overall total gas bill is going to be 39-percent on average, below where it was at this time last year."

The ten percent of Kentucky households that use propane and the three percent that use heating oil should also see lower heating bills. Of course, the colder the winter, the higher the costs, so it pays to winterize your home.
