FPU natural gas rates drop in February

Fayetteville Public Utilities (FPU) announced this week that they will decrease residential natural gas rates to $1.14 per ccf (hundred cubic feet) in February.  This is a decrease of 3 cents as compared to January’s rate at $1.17 per ccf.

Last month, 100 ccf of natural gas was billed at $128.20 including the customer charge. In February, the same amount of gas use will cost $125.84. This is an energy savings to the customer of $2.36.

“Changes in the market have allowed us to decrease our natural gas rates,” says FPU’s CEO and General Manager Britt Dye.

“Our customers should be reminded that the natural gas market is unpredictable and very volatile,” Dye adds. “When coupled with global economic concerns and numerous gas market influences, there is no guarantee of how long these rates will be in effect.”
