The latest quarterly adjustment that National Fuel Gas has made to its gas supply charges shows residential bills are rising by about 3.3 percent.
National Fuel spokesperson Sandra James says that means the “typical” residential customer’s monthly bill will increase by $2.36. The change takes effect today (May 1).
The rate hike comes through the first adjustment since a 6.7 percent decrease that was announced by National Fuel on February 1.
In its mandatory annual filing with the state’s Public Utility Commission, the company has already forecast a 9.2 percent hike in gas supply charges beginning next quarter, that is on August 1.
