UGI is drop­ping its price in Sept.

The Morning Call - - BUSINESS CYCLE - By Jes­sica Johnson

Great news for nat­u­ral gas cus­tomers: UGI said Fri­day its rate will de­crease be­gin­ning Sun­day.

The fuel por­tion of cus­tomers’ bill will drop by 1.93%, ac­cord­ing to a news re­lease. That means the bill for a typ­i­cal res­i­den­tial cus­tomer will fall from $68.75 per month to $67.42 per month.

“This change re­flects ac­tual and pro­jected gas costs re­lated to whole­sale sup­ply,” said Chris Brown, UGI vice pres­i­dent and gen­eral man­ager of rates and sup­ply.

By law, util­i­ties are re­quired to pass the cost of the nat­u­ral gas they buy to cus­tomers with­out any markup.

De­spite this de­crease, UGI said, some cus­tomers may have dif­fi­culty pay­ing their util­ity bill. The com­pany of­fers bud­get billing, as well as mul­ti­ple free pay­ment op­tions to cus­tomers who en­roll in UGI’s on­line bill pay­ment pro­gram, or the au­tod­e­duc­tion pro­gram to as­sist cus­tomers in man­ag­ing bill pay­ments. Ad­di­tion­ally, cus­tomers on a fixed in­come can con­tact the com­pany at 800-844-9276 to learn if they are el­i­gi­ble for en­ergy as­sis­tance.

Cus­tomers can learn about en­ergy ef­fi­ciency and other top­ics at www.ugi.com. The com­pany sells gas to more than 392,000 cus­tomers in 16 coun­ties, in­clud­ing Le­high and Northamp­ton.
