Consumers Energy natural gas users will spend less this winter
Consumers Energy says its natural gas customers will be paying less this winter to heat their homes.
Dan Bishop is a Consumers spokesman. He says more plentiful supplies are leading to a 3 percent cut in natural gas prices.
“In recent years there’s been a large amount of new natural gas discoveries in the United States and in Canada. And that extra increase of supply has really put downward pressure on prices," says Bishop.
Bishop says the average customer will pay about 4 dollars less this winter than last year.
Consumers Energy has 1.7 million natural gas customers in Michigan.
