A chilly forecast for this winter comes from the State Public Service Commission. P.S.C. Chairman Kelvin Simmons says the Commission is increasingly worried about home heating bills this winter.

Simmons says it’s not too early to warn Missourians about a tough winter. Another negative factor is low storage levels, nearly 30-percent below the five yearaverage. He says the only way to avoid high natural gas prices would be to have a mild summer followed by a mild winter.
