ERIE, Pa. — Monthly natural gas bills will be going up in February.
National Fuel Gas Distribution Corp. submitted a 6.6 percent increase to the Pennsylvania Public Utility Commission that will be in effect starting Wednesday.
The adjustment increases the monthly bill of a typical residential customer using 97,100 cubic feet of gas annually by $4.52, from $68.54 to $73.06.
The main driver of the adjustment is projected higher natural gas supply charges.
Market prices of natural gas continue to remain low when compared to the previous 10 years due in large part to the large supply of Marcellus Shale gas, according to a news release.
