Gas distribution charges include the fixed charges, variable energy charges, demand charge (where applicable), and exclude the gas cost. However, some municipalities also apply the Franchise Fee to gas costs. If your municipality applies the Franchise Fee to gas costs, an asterisk (*) appears beside the municipality name.
