Mo. natural gas customers to seek rate decrease

March 31st, 2013 in News

JOPLIN, Mo. (AP) - Customers of Missouri Gas Energy will pay less for their natural gas because of lower wholesale prices.

The Joplin Globe (http://bit.ly/120hD6f ) reports that the rate decrease takes effect Monday and will save the average customer about $32 per year.

About 65 to 75 percent of a customer's natural gas bill reflects the cost of natural gas from wholesale suppliers. Missouri Gas Energy serves about 500,000 natural gas customers in Missouri, including those in Joplin.
