Gas Rate Increases On Hold In Eastern KY

The Public Service Commission is putting on hold discussion of two potential Eastern Kentucky gas rate increases. On Dec. 28, 2018, both Johnson County Gas Company and B&H Gas Company in Floyd County asked for base rate increases. B&H Gas wanted to raise the average monthly bill, not including the cost of the gas itself, from $9.74 to $88.44. Johnson County Gas wanted to raise the average monthly bill from $49.40 to $86.16. Both companies said they wanted to increase the rates to repay debts. Johnson County Gas owes $148,230.54 and B&H Gas owes $1,775,823.53. The PSC says it’s investigating the unauthorized debt issued by Johnson County Gas Company and B&H Gas Company.
