The price of gasoline is not the only thing plunging these days.

Natural gas is down, too.

Wisconsin Public Service of Green Bay now expects its customers to pay just 5 percent more this winter, down from the 15 to 20 percent jump it predicted two weeks ago.

Spokesman Kerry Spees said wholesale gas that was going for $13.50 a decatherm in mid-August now goes for $7.

If the price holds steady, and the winter temperatures are normal, Spies says the typical residential customer should only pay $30 to $50 more in the heating season that runs from November through March.

He says the weather will be the determining factor.
