Natural Gas Prices Could Rise 13% This Winter

Updated:

CHICAGO (AP) - A federal report is predicting Midwest natural gas bills could jump by 13 percent this winter. The Citizens Utility Board estimates that people in Illinois could save almost $37 million a year with more energy-efficient furnaces, light bulbs and appliances. Utilities also offer rebates to help defray the costs of some projects.

CUB also recommends taking simple steps such as turning down the thermostat and closing doors in empty rooms.

CUB says Illinois residents use 44 percent more energy than the national average on heating and cooling because of weather extremes.
