WILLIAMSVILLE, N.Y. (WIVB) — Fall is here, and Winter will soon come after.
National Fuel says that Winter heating bills will be at a record low level. The average bill for western New Yorkers is expected to total $497 for five months.
“Lower winter heating season bills seem destined to repeat this winter across Western New York,” Karen L. Merkel, spokesperson for National Fuel, said. “With the exception of last year’s record warm winter, the upcoming winter is forecasted to have the lowest winter heating season bill in the last 17 years, even lower than 2011-12 which featured the region’s warmest winter ever on record with temperatures 22.3 percent warmer than usual. That season’s winter heating season bill averaged $615.”
