Even though meteorologists are still trying to determine the long-term forecast for this winter, National Fuel has released its prediction for costs this season.
Given last year’s record warmth, customers may experience a slight increase from a year ago.
It says heating costs are still near the lowest they’ve been in a decade.
The current forecasted bill for an average residential customer for the winter season is $657. Last year, it was $615.
Based on the assumption of normal winter weather, National Fuel customers could experience an overall increase of $42 or $8.42 a month.
