Consumers have told are special task force they would rather know what they will be paying to hear their homes this winter than risk price spikes in an effort to get cheap natural gas prices. Stability is the key in a report delivered to the Public Service Commission from its Natural Gas Commodity Price Task Force. The report totals nearly 100 pages. It recommends the companies that buy natural gas work to keep the spikes from spiking too high, even if that means they won’t always get the lowest prices. The task force also recomends the PSC change its regulations to allow utilities to adjust rates more frequently, so that when natural gas prices rise they rise more slowly. Other suggestions include help for poor residents struggling with high bills and education to help consumers lower their utility bills.
