FPU natural gas rates to decrease in January

Fayetteville Public Utilities announced this week that its natural gas rates are decreasing effective with January’s billing.

FPU residential customers will see a decrease from $1.08 per hundred cubic feet (ccf) to $1.05 per ccf.

For residential gas customers who use an average of 100 ccf per month, natural gas bills will decrease from $120.02 in December to $116.93 in January, giving a savings of $3.09 per 100 ccf.

“January and February are usually our coldest months, and they traditionally require an increased need for heating fuels and energy,” says FPU’s CEO and General Manager Britt Dye. “Depending on your individual heating needs, your natural gas bill may or may not actually reflect a decrease in your natural gas bill.”
