National Grid: Natural Gas Prices Going Down


What looks like an expensive heating season is looking better and better if you use natural gas.

National Grid says a plentiful supply of natural gas means a typical customer will pay a little bit less from November through March.

The savings will be about $21 compared to last year. 

The typical homeowner pays about $644 dollars a year to heat with natural gas.

National Grid says natural gas is better for the environment.

"A typical National Grid customer in the northeast U.S. who converts from heating oil to natural gas can can save enough CO2 in one year that it equates to about taking about 15 cars off of the road,"  said spokesperson Virginia Limmiatis.

National Grid's estimate is based on a typical winter. 

The state Public Service commission says natural gas prices are expected to be lower for all the state's utilities this season.
