Commodity Pricing Options
The IPO for July 2018 is $0.4444
The IPO commodity charge will change each month, either up or down, and is calculated based on the New York Mercantile Exchange (NYMEX) closing settlement prices. Essentially, the IPO allows you float with the market price for gas each month.
Effective September 1, 2017 the FPO rate for one year will be $ 0.7116
Customers can select the FPO to “lock-in” the commodity rate component during August for a one year term. Customers who select the FPO will be charged the same monthly commodity price for gas used until the one year term expires.
The 2017 final FPO price was calculated based on the NYMEX Settlement Price on August 29, 2017. Those who had elected to lock-in were notified by mail of the final FPO price.

If you are currently on the FPO, your account will revert to IPO automatically unless you contact us to enroll in this years FPO.
2017 UPDATE: MNG’s Tariff no longer provides a three-day grace period for residential customers to select the FPO after September 1, and all new customers after the FPO enrollment period will not have the option of selecting the FPO pricing. All FPO selections must happen within the enrollment period.
