Natural gas

The price of natural gas in Michigan will likely drop some, mainly due to the unique geology of our state.

NaturalGasWhile Michigan winters can be much colder than other states, it does have a geological advantage that allows gas companies to buy gas in the summer when the rates tend to be at their lowest.

Michigan is among a few states that has natural underground storage available, [Michigan Public Service Commission spokesperson Judy] Palnau said. “We can pump it in there during the summer, and have it available during the winter. Most states don’t have that geological characteristic.”  MLive
