HARRISONBURG, Va. (WHSV) -- With this cold snap, more folks are cranking up the heat, increasing the demand for natural gas.

Due to that demand, your bill may go up this month.

Robert Innes, a spokesman for Columbia Gas of Virginia, said prices right now are lower than in 2013.

He said last year, a typical customer paid $123 per month. That same amount of gas is now $114.

"We have seen some unusual cold weather, so you may see an increase depending on what the rest of the month does, but all and all it is lower than a year ago," said Innes.

He said people can pay in a budget plan where you balance out your payment all year.

That way you won't see spikes in your bill, when the cold weather strikes. is happy to provide a forum for commenting and discussion. Please respect and abide by the house rules:
