SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- The Utah Public Service Commission has approved a nearly 5 percent rate hike for Questar Gas customers, raising the typical customer's bill about $40.55 a year.
Coupled with earlier rate changes, customers will be paying about $167 more per year than they were a year ago.
The Utah Public Service Commission on Wednesday approved the $34.8 million annualized gas-cost increase, effective the day before.
About $4.7 million of the latest increase is related to processing costs associated with a carbon dioxide processing plant near Price.
