The Manitoba Public Utilities Board announced on Wednesday that primary gas rates in the province will go down as of February 1st.

The decrease comes after the board approved Centra Gas Manitoba’s application.

According to the board, rates will be set at $0.0863/m3 down from $0.0910/m3.

The change is expected to save customers $10 a year. Customers who have a fixed-term, fixed-price contract with Centra or a private broker won’t be affected.

The province’s primary gas rates will be reviewed again on May 1st.
