Vectren Corporation Research Report

On October 8, 2013, Vectren Corporation (Vectren) issued a press release
stating that rising natural gas prices will modestly increase the 2013 winter
bills as compared with winter 2012 bills. However, the release also mentioned
that the 2013 winter bills should still remain manageable given that bills
remain more than 35% lower than the winter bills of 2008-2009. Vectren further
highlighted the winter outlook of Energy Information Administration (EIA),
which indicates that average heating bills in 2013 will increase as compared
to winter 2012 because of the modest upward movements in gas prices. Colleen
Ryan, President of Vectren Energy Delivery of Ohio said, "For the past four
winters, customers have seen year-over-year winter bill reductions due to
falling gas costs that have now seemed to level off. Abundant gas supply in
the U.S. has resulted in low, stable natural gas costs, which are passed
through to customers on a dollar-for-dollar basis." The Full Research Report
