CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) -- Customers of Mountaineer Gas will have a chance to voice concerns during a series of public hearings on a proposed rate increase.

The Charleston-based company is seeking a rate increase that would boost the bills of typical residential customers by $3.40 per month. Large customers would be exempt.

AARP West Virginia state director Gaylene Miller says the proposed increase would only compound the daily challenges facing low-to-moderate-income residents.

The group is urging senior citizens and low-income customers to attend the meeting.

The state Public Service Commission is holding public hearings on the proposed rate increase Monday in Charleston, July 5 in Huntington, July 6 in Wheeling and July 12 in Beckley.

Mountaineer Gas has 217,000 customers in 48 counties.
