It’s still summer, but the Public Service Commission is thinking winter and believes it’s time for many Missourians to do the same. The P.S.C. has issued a report stating nearly 29,000 Missourians remain without natural gas service, unable to pay bills lingering from last winter. Another 50,000 could be disconnected soon. The average owed is $670 – more than double the amount owed a year ago. The P.S.C. says many utility companies are willing to work with customers. As for those who have been cut off, the P.S.C. says this is the right time of year to start taking steps to restore service.
