Natural Gas Prices In Henderson Expected to Increase

City officials say the jump is due to the pandemic.

Henderson residents could be seeing prices increase for natural gas this winter. 

City officials say these price jumps are mostly due to supply and demand. 

Residents can expect to pay up to 50 percent more than normal per gas bill.

City officials say the price increase is not ideal and the pandemic is to blame. 

"Well of course we don't like that either, some of us are utility bill payers as well so it's hard and I know it's hard because people have gone through some extraordinary times," said Donna Stinnett, City of Henderson Public Information Officer.

There are steps to take to reduce the amount of energy your home needs. This includes turning down the thermostat, adding insulation and covering bare floors with rugs.

It was another chilly start across the Tri-State; while we only dipped as low as 43° in Evansville, many others across the Tri-State fell into the upper 30s earlier this morning. The cool air didn't linger long however, temperatures quickly reached back into the mid 70s across the region this afternoon - higher pressure camped out over the southeastern quarter of the country will continue to keep the skies above the Tri-State clear while gradually driving temperatures higher over the next few days. Despite our anticipated southerly winds this evening, you may still want to grab a jacket before your head out to dinner; after seeing a temperature near 64° around dinnertime, we'll fall off toward the mid to upper 50s by 10 o'clock. Overnight lows will again dwindle into the mid to low 40s for the majority of the Ohio Valley early Tuesday morning.
