Natural Gas Consumers Can Expect To Pay More This Year

FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - Kentuckians who use natural gas can expect to pay more this season.

Kentucky Public Service Commission Mark David Goss says consumers are facing a "fairly modest" hike this year.

Goss says natural gas prices have been increasing and aren't expected to decline any time soon. Goss says prices should remain
somewhat stable barring widespread and extremely cold weather.

According to the commission a Kentucky customer who uses 10 cubic feet of gas next month would pay on average of about $128, or an increase of about $12 from a year ago.

Consumers can try to reduce their natural gas bills by doing things such as weatherizing their homes and conserving energy.
