Shale Reducing Home Fuel Bill
Friday, February 1, 2013
today, National Fuel Gas customers will be paying less to heat their homes. National fuel has asked the Public Utility Commission
for a quarterly adjustment which includes a 6.7% decrease in fuel costs to its
customers. The reduction will lower the
monthly bill of a typical residential customer from $76.61 to $71.45. According to National Fuel, the decrease is
due, in large part, to increasing Marcellus shale gas production.
