FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) — Utility regulators say Kentuckians who heat their homes with natural gas will see slightly higher prices compared to a year ago.

The Kentucky Public Service Commission says gas prices have risen, on average, about 12 percent from this time last year, but are about 60 percent below peak prices in 2008.

The PSC says when base rates are factored in, Kentucky residential customers, on average, can expect their total gas bills to be about 6 percent higher this November than a year ago, based on consumption of 10,000 cubic feet of natural gas.

It says the average total bill for 10,000 cubic feet of gas is projected to be about $89.08. That includes gas costs and base rates, but not miscellaneous charges. That's up more than $5 from last year.
