Duluth, MN (NNCNOW.com) - The extreme winter cold has caused a natural gas price spike in Duluth.

According to energy officials in Duluth, the current price for residential customers is $1.40 per 100 cubic feet, that's up from $1.00 in February and 78 cents in January.

The rates are similar for commercial and industrial customers.
Officials say even with the spike in price, natural gas is the most economical choice for home heating with prices significantly lower than propane, electricity, and fuel oil costs.

Customers will see the increase in the purchased gas adjustment portion of their bill.
