Cody, Wy – Residential gas customers in the Cody area will see their gas rates drop 25 percent next month.
The Wyoming Public Service Commission approved the rate reduction for the Energy West gas utility last Tuesday.
Tim Good is the company's vice president for natural gas operations. He says lower rates are able to be passed on because the company has been able to secure a cheaper supply of gas.
Frigid temperatures, higher rates approved last May and an extended billing period contributed to higher-than-normal rates for Cody-area gas customers last month.
