AGA PREDICTS WINTER JUMP IN RESIDENTIAL GAS PRICE
The American Gas Association predicts the average heating bill for residential gas consumers could increase by as much as 18% this winter. AGA Pres. Mike Baly said, "Last year's winter was warmer than normal. If the 1992-93 winter is similar, AGA projects that residential natural gas heating bills will go up about 6%. "If we see a return to normal winter weather, our projections show the average bill could rise by almost 18%."
