Lancaster County Natural Gas Authority customers should see a small decrease in their bills next month.
General Manager Tim Thornton said Monday that the authority decided on a 1.5 percent decrease in its rate.
In July 2008, the cost of natural gas was $1.85 a therm, the unit used to measure natural gas. In February, the cost will be $1.37 a therm.
The drop in cost is a result of less natural gas demand for industrial use and to produce electricity, Thornton said. More natural gas was also produced through exploration and development than anticipated.
