Natural-gas customers in the midstate won't see their bills go up this year, UGI Utilities Inc. announced today.

However, those in the Northeastern part of the state will see a 3.1 percent increase, the company said in a news release.

Customers of UGI Gas Division and UGI Central Penn Gas, which includes most customers in the counties around Harrisburg, are exempt from the increase that UGI Penn Natural Gas customers will see, said UGI spokesman Joe Swope.

Customers concentrated around Williamsport, Scranton and Wilkes-Barre will see their average bill go to $94.17 from $91.33 per month, according to the release.

UGI Penn Natural Gas most recently decreased rates by 6.2 percent on Dec. 1, the company said. However, customers' bills remain nearly 40 percent lower compared to March 2009, due in part to the availability of significant supplies of locally produced Marcellus Shale gas, according to the release.

UGI Utilities Inc. natural-gas companies serve more than 597,000 customers in 45 Pennsylvania counties and one Maryland county.
