Customers of Columbia Gas of Virginia to see bills dip


CHESTERFIELD, Va. (AP) — Customers of Columbia Gas of Virginia will see their monthly bills drop in March because of what the company says is abundant and reliable domestic supplies of natural gas.

The Chesterfield-based energy supplier has more than 250,000 customers in suburban Richmond, central and northern Virginia, Hampton Roads and elsewhere.

The company said monthly bills will drop 8.8 percent starting March 2. That means a typical residential customer will pay about $11 less per month, or a total bill of $115.76.

Columbia Gas is required by law to pass price increases and decreases on to customers.
