(Salt Lake City-AP) -- Questar Corporation is asking state regulators to lower its natural gas rates in Utah.
If approved, the typical customer still would pay about 15 percent more for gas service than last winter because of a rate hike that took place July first.
Questar said its request was a routine twice-yearly cost adjustment reflecting projections of lower market prices for natural gas.
The new rate would reduce gas bills by about two percent for typical residential consumers. If approved by the Utah Public Service Commission, the change would take effect January first.
