SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) - A 9 percent rate hike for Avista natural gas service takes effect Friday for about 150,000 customers in Spokane and other parts of Eastern Washington.
The bill for a typical household will go up about $5 to $63 a month.
The Spokesman-Review reports ( http://bit.ly/1ix4bd7) the increase reflects wholesale prices that began climbing this year after dropping to a 10-year low last year.
