Lower natural gas prices benefit local governments

August 27, 2014

The services provided by local governments are very important to our communities and that is why we have spent considerable time in the legislature to reduce their costs of operations and provide them new ways to save tax dollars. In particular, the recent growth in Ohio's gas industry has lowered natural gas prices for all Ohioans including the community and township halls in western Ohio.

The positive effects of natural gas on households around the state and in western Ohio are undeniable. Both Vectren and Dominion East Ohio Gas report that their natural gas customers have witnessed a 35 percent decrease in their gas bills since the winter of 2009.
