Natural gas use spikes during cold snap

UNDATED (WRN)   Furnaces have been working overtime during the cold snap, and We Energies customers set a record for natural gas use, earlier this week. Spokesman Brian Manthey says totals from Monday morning to Tuesday morning beat the previous mark by seven percent. He says during that time, it cost $7 to heat the typical home. He says it costs $4 on a normal January day.

Manthey says bills will be higher this month, because of usage, and not natural prices. He says prices may only climb slightly because of the increased demand.
