Lower Gas Bills Upcoming for Alagasco Customers

Montgomery, AL – (AP) - Customers of Alabama Gas Corp. are going
to pay lower rates for heating their homes.
The Birmingham-based utility has notified that Alabama Public
Service Commission that it is dropping rates because its supply
costs have gone down. Company spokeswoman Susan Delenne says the
average residential customer's annual bill should go down by more
than $60.
Delenne says this is the fourth rate reduction since November
2008.
The PSC allows Alabama Gas to raise and lower its rates
automatically when the cost of obtaining natural gas goes up or
down.
