The monthly natural gas price for residential customers who are on the Standard Choice Offer is going down for the month of November. 

Effective Nov. 10, Dominion East Ohio's SCO rate will be $2.71 per thousand cubic feet (mcf). That's 19 cents cents/mcf or 6.5 percent lower than the October rate of $2.90/mcf.

The rates are also 66 cents, or 32 percent, higher than the November 2015 SCO rate of $2.05/mcf.

    The SCO is a monthly rate determined by a state-approved formula.

Under the company's filing, the average SCO residential customer's bill for the month of Novemberwill be $58.59, up $9.38, or 19.1percent, from $$49.21 a year ago.

    All Dominion East Ohio residential customers also pay two charges directly to Dominion, regardless of their supplier to pay for delivery and other utility costs.
    Customers pay a fixed $26.16 for the basic monthly charge and a usage-based charge.
