Heating Bills Will Be Higher

Cheyenne, Wy – Wyoming residents who heat their homes
with natural gas are in for some big bills this winter.
Figures released by the state Public Service Commission show
natural gas rates will increase an average of 32 percent statewide
this winter.
Most people in Wyoming heat their residential homes with natural
gas.
PSC secretary and chief counsel Chris Petrie says rates change
every day but it's likely people will be paying more this winter
than last winter mainly because of the higher price for natural gas
on the market.
The PSC is trying to help residents prepare for the higher
heating bills by holding a winter heating conference in Casper on
August 20th. In addition, PSC commissioners are holding a series of
town meetings across the state.
