During Thursday's CU board meeting, General Manager John Twitty said:
“We do not know from one hour to the next what natural gas prices will be. Yesterday we saw the market go up twenty cents a therm on past and future hurricane news. Where the market goes today is anyone’s guess."
CU has long prided itself on providing low utility rates. That selling point won't carry nearly as much weight this winter, especially if the Ozarks slips into a deep freeze.
