The average residential customer who uses 70 Ccf (a Ccf is 100 cubic feet of natural gas) per month will pay approximately $91.75 compared to the current bill of $102.95, an 11 percent reduction in the total gas bill.
The City passes along the cost of the natural gas it purchases to its customers, dollar for dollar, without markup. DPU analysts periodically review and adjust rates based on market and weather conditions.
