Increase in Gas Charges Begin in October
The City of Brenham Gas Utility Customers can expect to see an increase in their gas charges this month. October bills will reflect rate increases to the customer charge and the distribution charge. In the past, customers saw a Gas Cost Adjustment (GCA) credit because the purchase price for the gas supply was less than the City’s commodity charge of $5.35 per mcf. The price of natural gas has risen drastically since April 2021, so customers will see a GCA as an additional charge, rather than a credit, because the purchase price for the gas supply is more than the City’s commodity charge of $5.35 per mcf. The main drivers of this increase are:
- Natural gas supplies are limited
- Winter is coming thereby increasing demand
- Natural gas inventories are low
The GCA charge will begin on the October utility billing cycle.
