New Yorkers are in for a 24% increase in their heating bills this winter as a global natural gas shortage is sending prices for the fuel surging. 

Utility Consolidated Edison Inc. is warning New York customers they’ll pay $341 per month on average to heat their homes from November through March 2022, marking a $66 increase from last winter’s average monthly bill.
