Natural Gas Price Spikes Lead to Increased Bills

Natural gas price spikes lead to increased electric bills for cooperative members

Little Rock, Ark. — Feb. 11, 2014 — Arkansas electric cooperatives are setting new peaks for power consumption this winter as it is the coldest winter the state has experienced in 20 years. Higher than normal usage results in higher than normal bills, and this year higher prices in the natural gas market have added to the burden on consumers.
