CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) - State officials say they expect lower gas utility bills for two-thirds of West Virginia residents.

A Public Service Commission news release Monday says eight of 12 natural gas utilities in the state have requested to lower the purchased gas part of their rates.

Mountaineer Gas Company, the state’s largest gas utility, has asked for a 6.55 percent decrease. Typical users of an average amount of gas will see their monthly bills drop by $2.21.

Interim rates take effect Nov. 1.

Customer gas rates are adjusted annually through the Public Service Commission to account for the cost of gas.
