Gas Rates Up and Down in SeMo

CAPE GIRARDEAU, MO - Some customers in southeast Missouri will get a break on their winter heating bills this year, while others will pay more.

Each year at the end of October, the Missouri Public Service Commission reviews utility company estimates of the costs of natural gas for the winter.  The result is used to set rate prices for the next six months.

For the upcoming months, AmerenUE will have lower rates for about 21,000 natural gas customers, primarily in the Cape Girardeau area, and parts of Stoddard and Scott counties.

Meanwhile, the nearly 33,000 gas customers of Atmos Energy in Cape Girardeau, Dunklin, Mississippi, New Madrid, Iron, Pemiscot, Ripley, Scott, Stoddard, and Wayne counties will see rates rise by 12 percent.
