Price of natural gas down, but still expect to pay more
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.
