By now you have probably seen other communities across Missouri and the country are issuing similar alerts on natural gas pricing during this critical period. We are glad to report our efforts here locally are making a difference. In speaking with our buyer this morning, our usage has remained at or below the contracted amount and we have been able to avoid the exorbitant prices…so far anyway.
These are extreme conditions but today and tomorrow seem to be the coldest in the forecast. Please stay the course and continue your efforts. There is an increasing possibility that we can make it through this somewhat unscathed. This is far better news than we started with Friday afternoon.
