Liberty Utilities drops price of natural gas - for some

MISSOURI (KFVS) - Liberty Utilities is cutting the cost of natural gas to most of it's residential customers in the Show-Me state - just not those in southeast Missouri.

The company announced natural gas rate changes that take effect November 1 to reflect estimated changes in the wholesale cost of natural gas and Liberty's Actual Cost Adjustment (ACA) factor.

The Northeast District, that includes Clark, Lewis, Knox, Marion, Pike, Ralls, and Scotland counties, will see their rate drop 20 cents per Ccf (one hundred cubic feet of natural gas.)

Instead of paying $.60 per Ccf, customers will pay roughly $0.40 per Ccf.

The West District, serving Bates, Cass, Henry, and St. Clair counties, will see a decrease from $0.57 per Ccf to about $0.35 per Ccf.

Customers who live in the counties of Macon, Adair, and Schuyler will see their cost drop from $0.65 per Ccf to approximately $0.44 per Ccf.

However, the Southeast District which includes the counties of Butler, Cape Girardeau, Dunklin, Iron, Mississippi, New Madrid, Pemiscot, Ripley, Scott, Stoddard, and Wayne, will stay the same at $0.54 per Ccf.

Liberty Utilities serves more than 53,000 natural gas customers in Missouri.
