Chesapeake Utilities recently filed changes to its Gas Sales Rate, estimating an average increase of 6.03 percent or $62.30 for residential customers.

Savings tips include turning your thermostat down a few degrees, replacing dirty furnace filters, weather stripping doors and windows, opening shades on sunny days, and closing vents and doors of unoccupied areas.
