Oklahoma Natural Gas announced today it will charge $8.27 per thousand cubic feet instead of $7.88.
To an average household, that would mean an extra $10.00 or so per month.
O-N-G says it's been undercharging some customers lately. The utility buys natural gas and sells it at the same cost.
The company does pass on transportation and administrative costs to its customers.
Don Sherry is O-N-G spokesman. He says the price boost is due to the fact the utility hasn't been recovering its gas purchasing expenses.
