PSE&G proposes to lower gas bills by nearly 9%

Public Service Enterprise (PEG) is proposing to cut gas bills for its residential customers by an average 8.9% starting in October, thanks to lower rates for natural gas.

PSE&G is aiming to cut its basic gas supply rate by nearly 17% to $0.45 from $0.54, the lowest rate in 14 years.

The drop in rates is attributed in part to the low-cost shale gas supply from the Marcellus Shale, from which the utility purchases its gas.

    Even government-mandated monopolies can play nice. Good news here.

    Sorry Obamabots, but domestically-produced oil and gas is ACTUALLY GOOD for the USA and its citizens :)

    Absolutely amazing! What would happen if all of the utilities that have/use/distribute natural gas were to reduce their utility customers' bills?? The pipeline would start being built asap. More gas sources would be developed.....
