TRENTON, N.J. (AP) — New Jerseyans will pay less to
heat their homes with natural gas this winter.
The state Board of Public Utilities says an abundant supply of natural gas is
translating to projected decreases in the purchase costs for utilities.
BPU President Bob Hanna says the average customer's bill has dropped 38% on
average since 2008.
The BPU says the typical Public Service Electric and Gas customer will save
$38 a year. The savings for Elizabethtown Gas customers will be $26. New Jersey
Natural Gas customers can expect a nearly $15 savings and rates for South Jersey
Gas customers will be nearly $7 lower.
