IMPORTANT NOTICE REGARDING UPCOMING RATE CHANGE


The Natural Gas Charge component of your bill is decreasing effective May 7, 2013.  The Daily Access and Distribution Charges are not changing.

 

The net effect of this change is an average overall decrease of 2.1%. 

 

Vermont Gas adjusts the Natural Gas Charge portion of your bill quarterly, up or down, in response to changes in the cost of gas. The wholesale natural gas prices remain low and have declined even further since the last quarterly adjustment to the Natural Gas Charge.  The decrease to Natural Gas Charge reflects this change in the wholesale prices.
