AGA ANSWERS COMPLAINTS ON BURNER TIP PRICES
The American Gas Association has rebutted complaints that natural gas prices have dropped at the wellhead but not at the burner tip. AGA Pres. Mike Baly said an association study of the issue found that all classes of customers paid less for gas in 1991 than they did in 1984, when gas prices were at their peak. He said, "The study also shows that 100% of the wellhead price decline has been passed through to natural gas consumers in the form of lower retail prices."
