Prices for natural gas in Massachusetts are constantly on the rise, with some residents worried that if the gas costs keep going up, heating their homes will be beyond their control and budget.
Jynai McDonald said her gas bill in January amounted to $506. As a single mother with three young children in Springfield, she is worried about costs increasing. McDonald is an Eversource Gas customer, formally known as Columbia Gas. Other residents that spoke to MassLive also mirrored McDonald’s sentiment.
