Cheyenne, Wy – The Governor says people need to plan for high heating costs. Natural gas companies say they plan on hiking heating costs substantially this year, possibly as high as 70 percent. For that reason, Governor Dave Freudenthal wants people to use the summer months to make their homes and businesses energy efficient.
Freudenthal says the cost of natural gas at the Hub is double of what it was last year. He says the Wyoming Public Service Commission does not have the ability to regulate such increases.
