JACKSON (WWJ) – Consumers Energy’s average residential natural gas customer is paying a bill about 20 percent less than last year due to lower gas prices and unseasonably warm temperatures in Michigan.
An average residential gas customer will pay a bill of about $112 this month, for usage during December. Typically an average residential gas customer would pay a bill of about $140 this time of year.
