DAYTON — As Dominion Energy Ohio customers prepare for winter weather, they may also plan for possible increased costs to their monthly gas bills. In response, the company will offer several cost-saving programs.
Greater demand and decreased natural gas levels nation-wide have resulted in “tightening supplies and market uncertainty” heading into the heating season, said Jim Eck, vice president and general manager of Dominion Energy Ohio. National gas inventories are below the five-year average heading into winter. Contributing to the low levels were above average withdrawals from storage last winter due to cold weather.
