Jefferson City, MO – The Missouri Public Service Commission said Thursday that natural gas prices for more than 130,000 Missouri customers are changing.
The rate for nearly 100,000 central Missouri AmerenUE customers are expected to fall about 9%, starting Wednesday. The drop reflects changes in wholesale costs of natural gas and adjustments in the company's tool for handling under- or overcharges for gas costs.
Residential customers' rates will go from $0.95 to $0.87 per 100 cubic feet of gas.
