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.
