Natural gas rates going up for Ameren Missouri customers

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (KMIZ)

The Missouri Public Service Commission is reporting Ameren Missouri natural gas customers will see natural gas rates going up due to the estimated changes in the wholesale cost of natural gas on July 1.

In a release, Ameren Missouri natural gas customers will pay 16 cents more for natural gas going from .77Ccf to $.93 Ccf (per hundred cubic feet) of natural gas.

Customers' natural gas bill is around 50% to 55% of the cost of natural gas from wholesale suppliers.

The wholesale cost of natural gas (the cost your local natural gas company must pay to its suppliers for natural gas) is not regulated by the Missouri Public Service Commission.

The wellhead cost of natural gas is unregulated and is primarily driven by supply, demand and the weather.

Ameren Missouri serves 133,600 natural gas customers in 25 Missouri counties.
