Natural gas bills in Missouri are rising significantly

JEFFERSON CITY — Spire natural gas customers should expect a bigger bill soon. They’re charging more because the price of natural gas is rising and the company has increased its “actual cost adjustment” fee.

The wholesale cost of natural gas accounts for about 50 percent of your monthly bill. These prices rise and fall based on supply and demand.

Spire tracks a surplus or deficit of natural gas over a 12-month period. The difference from the past year is either refunded to the customers or retained by the company. They will charge more from December.

For customers near St. Louis, the cost per cubic foot will increase by eleven cents. Prices should rise about 13 cents in western parts of Missouri. The increase in costs should show up on your bill, but it won’t be as bad as 2021.

Gas bills in Missouri have risen sharply over the past year. In 2021, the average monthly bill for Spire East customers increased by 22 cents per month, for an average increase of $14.52 per month. Spire West customers saw an increase of 39 cents per spa for an average increase of $24.36. Natural gas bills in Missouri are rising significantly
