PSE&G Announces Plan to Cut Residential Gas Bills by Nearly One-Third

Customers reap the benefit of cheaper natural gas, which is at lowest price in 14 years

Public Service Electric & Gas residential customers will receive an average 31 percent cut in their gas bills this month and in March, the utility announced yesterday.

The Newark utility said it will extend credits it initiated this past November to customers because of the steep drop in natural gas prices, largely the result of the availability of low-cost shale gas from neighboring states.

For typical residential customers, it could mean a savings of $210 since last November. PSE&G said its costs for natural gas -- on which it does not make any profit -- are at the lowest rate in 14 years.
