About 282 customers of Megan Oil and Gas Company, many of them in the Big Springs and Calhoun area, in addition to the Tanner area, could be looking at a 237% increase in their consumer gas costs.

Megan Oil and Gas, whose principal office is in Spencer at the Roy G. Hildreth and Son headquarters, is seeking the increase with the West Virginia Public Service Commission.

A legal ad in the Calhoun Chronicle indicates the increase would be an average of about $70 a month.

If there is little protest by January 22, the request could be granted.

It appears that Megan, not unlike other gas outfits, does not want to be in the consumer gas business, and has been the subject of WV-PSC intervention when they have refused to hook-up local residents.

Megan is drilling for natural gas in the region.

Complaints, or to become an intervenor, should be directed to Executive Secretary, PSC of WV, PO Box 812, Charleston WV 25323.
