COLUMBUS Columbia Gas of Ohio has asked state regulators for permission to lower its natural gas rate in September to $1.09 per 100 cubic feet, 26 cents less than its August rate and the largest single month-to-month decrease since the utility began filing monthly rate requests in October, 2004.
The rate is subject to approval of the Public Utilities Commission of Ohio. The utility a year ago charged 98 cents. The rate applies only to customers of Columbia Gas, or about a quarter of all northwest Ohio customers using natural gas.
