Natural gas prices uncertain

November 20, 2002

Albany - Your natural gas bill may soar if America goes to war with Iraq. Nationally, natural gas prices are expected to go up nearly 20%. That means you'll pay about $100 to $300 more for heat this winter.

Albany Water, Gas, and Light officials say if we go to war, the price could skyrocket."We just don't now what will happen to the natural gas prices," said Lorie Farkas with Water, Gas, and Light. "At this point, it's a guessing game."

Farkas says October, November, and December are usually mild months when you have low utility bills. She suggests saving some of that money for January, February, and March's bills.
