There's at least one bright spot this winter -- you're saving money at the gas meter.
Dominion East Ohio's Neil Durbin says the slow economic recovery and relatively mild winter and improved production capturing new supplies of natural gas led to the lower prices for consumers, saving $47 dollars a month on average on January bills.
Durbin says the lower demand and higher production mean consumers are seeing big savings in their January bills. For example, he says most customers, on average, will see bills around $119 in January 2012 versus $166 they paid, on average, in January 2011.
BusinessWeek reports market costs for natural gas have fallen 13% to $2.69 per cubic feet in the most recent trading period.
The outlook for natural gas markets looking forward to the rest of the winter, weather permitting, is for lower prices to remain the norm. Durbin says natural gas storage levels are high because summer and fall draw downs were lower than expected. The U.S. Energy Information Agency says market production had the highest level increase on record.
Durbin calls the potential for shale gas supplies "the tip of the iceberg" in providing even greater supplies of natural gas from well sites, including here in Ohio.
