Columbia Gas of Ohio Inc. said Thursday that its customer rate for natural gas will remain at 54 cents per 100 cubic feet in June, the same price that it charged for May.

The new rate is based on the New York Mercantile Exchange’s closing price of 41 cents per 100 cubic feet plus 13 cents for a state-approved service fee. With the new rate, the average residential bill for June will be $40.99, the utility said.
