Columbia Gas of Virginia customers will see their monthly bills adjusted beginning Friday.
The company says the billing change is due to an increase in the cost of natural gas they purchases on behalf of their customers.
The typical total monthly residential customer bill will be a seasonal monthly amount of $41.52, compared to the current monthly bill of $39.21. This cost comparison is based on a 23 CCF seasonal monthly summer usage level. A CCF is the measurement used for natural gas usage and is the equivalent of 100 cubic feet.
Columbia's gas costs are typically adjusted on a quarterly basis to reflect the price the company pays for natural gas, which, by law, is passed on dollar for dollar to customers without markup or profit.
