The New York State Public Service Commission has announced that utilities providing natural gas services in the state have adequate supplies, delivery capacity and storage inventory to meet customer demands under severe winter conditions.

In New York, there are about 3 million naturalgas heating customers. Almost half of the state’s households use natural gas for heating and residential customers constitute the majority of natural gas customers.

“The availability and price of gas supply remains a priority concern of the commission,” said Public Service Commission Chairman Garry Brown. “Despite lower gas prices, low-income families or families on a fixed-income might still find it difficult to manage due to these challenging economic times.”

As part of the readiness review, the state Dept. of Public Service provided a report to the commission regarding the arrangements utilities have made to obtain adequate gas to meet expected customer demands under severe winter weather conditions.
