Texas Gas Service seeking rate hike
from Austin American Statesman
Texas Gas Service, which provides heat for much of the Austin area, is planning to raise its rates by summer. Under the proposal, the typical home would pay an average of $1.20 more a month. A typical business would pay $4.35 more; a large business, $65.41; and an industrial manufacturer, $19.44, according to city estimates. Texas Gas Service says it needs to collect more money to pay mainly for pipe replacement, as well as for new automated meters around the area.
