Gas Prices

Gas Price Outlook

Effective October 1, 2014, the procurement component of the core sales rate will decrease 1.456 ¢/therm to 44.500 ¢/therm. This decrease resulted from a 1.000 ¢/therm decrease in commodity prices and a 0.456 ¢/therm decrease in account adjustments. Compared to a year ago, the procurement rate is about 19.1% higher (37.375 ¢/therm) than what it was effective October 2013.

Combined with the transportation rate, core residential and C&I sales customers will see about an 1.8% rate decrease from last month.

Tips to lower energy costs and use natural gas wisely

The best way to keep winter gas bills lower is to conserve energy. Try these simple low cost/no-cost tips: 

  • Have a qualified, licensed technician test, clean and adjust your equipment.
  • Perform routine maintenance recommended by the manufacturer, according to the owner’s manual. This includes replacing dirty air filters and cleaning intake screens, condenser coils, supply registers and return grills.
  • Identify and repair leaky or disconnected ducts.
  • Caulk cracks around windows, doors and other openings.
  • Set programmable thermostats to turn heating on 30 minutes before people arrive and off 30 to 60 minutes before they leave. Set thermostats no higher than 68 degrees Fahrenheit during occupied periods in the winter.
  • Close curtains, shades and blinds at night and during unoccupied periods to help the building retain heat. Keep them open on sunny days.
  • Check all lighting timers to be sure they are turning interior and exterior lights on and off at appropriate times.
