The Oklahoma Corporation Commission approved the increase during a meeting on Tuesday and said it will help ONG cover higher business costs and natural gas infrastructure investments.

"So what we have going into the winter is rising costs in a market that is basically unregulated that the utilities have to use to purchase their fuel from, that fuel cost is passed onto us," said Matt Skinner from the Oklahoma Corporation Commission.
