    From Spfld News-Leader:

    Utility drops natural gas prices by 9 percent

    Missouri Gas Energy has announced a reduction of 9 percent in its rates for its 500,000 western Missouri residential natural gas customers, effective Tuesday, reflecting a drop in the wholesale price of natural gas.
    The price reduction from 94 cents to 86 cents per therm was approved by the Missouri Public Service Commission. The company in January reduced prices by 20 percent.

    I haven't seen anything about Ameren UE following suit yet...but that's about typical for them. :banghead:

    Now that it is getting colder gain that is a good thing. Last months' gas bill was a killer.

    Gas bill was over 3/4 of total utility bill. Hope it will affect central Mo as well.

    I hear you!! Last month's bill was a killer!! But I don't figure Ameren will buck up any time soon....after all, they have a dam to rebuild, some major restoration to pay for....and then the lawsuit(s). :D

    Natural gas what a bargain! Look at the energy content compared to other fuels. Don't like the prices either but what can you do?

    1 therm nat" gas = 103,000 btu $.86
    gallon of gasoline = 125,000 btu $1.57
    gallon of diesel = 140,000 btu $ 1.66

    Roscoe don't know about you but I was really blind sided by a $600 increase in my property tax. :soapbox:
