Mich. residents may see lower heating, gas costs
FLINT, MI – The Michigan Public Service Commission says Michigan residents could be in store for a cost-efficient winter.
The Flint Journal says the commission estimates that home heating costs will decline by as much as 16 percent compared with last year due to a mild winter forecast and adequate supply.
The panel says last winter was 4.8 percent colder than normal and a return to normal temperatures could reduce monthly heating bills by tens of dollars.
The outlook for motorists appears equally favorable.
GasBuddy.com says gas prices across the Midwest are expected to continue to decrease closer to $2 per gallon over the next month, due to ample supply and less demand.
