Black Hills Energy says the slowing economy will likely mean that hikes in natural gas prices will not be as steep as some economists had forecast.
Black Hills' Vice President Ivan Vancas said Tuesday that increases of 10 percent to 15 percent higher a year ago were more likely than what
had been expected.
The company also has seen long-term weather forecasts that predict a less severe winter this year, which would drive down the amount of gas consumers would use.
