Columbia Gas Withdraws Rate Hike Request

Columbia Gas is withdrawing its rate  hike proposal after last week's gas emergency caused fire and explosions  in the Merrimack Valley.  

The utility company announced yesterday it  was withdrawing its pending rate case. 

Columbia Gas originally filed in  April and a settlement had already been reached.  

If it went into  effect, it would have increased rates for 321 thousand customers.
