Natural gas rates to drop

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - Most Arkansans will be paying less to heat their homes this winter. The state's three largest providers of natural gas filed their annual winter rates with the Arkansas Public Service Commission on Friday.

Alicia Dixon, spokeswoman for CenterPoint Energy, says a customer using 9,000 cubic feet will pay $104 per month this winter. That's about 20 percent less than the $129 charged last winter.

 Michael Callan, president of Arkansas Oklahoma Gas, says the monthly bill for its customers will be $105 this winter, based on using 10,000 cubic feet.

 Last winter, an average monthly bill was $135, about 22 percent higher. Donna Campbell of Arkansas Western Gas says a customer using an average of 10,000 cubic feet a month will be charged $86 compared with $102 last winter. --- Information from: Arkansas Democrat-Gazette, http://www.arkansasonline.com
