SINGAPORE - Household gas tariffs will go down from 17.47 cents per kilowatt hour (kWh) to 16.80 cents per kWh for the period Feb 1 to April 30 this year(16), City Gas announced on Thursday (Jan28).

This is a 3.8 per cent reduction, or 0.67 cents per kWh. The changes can be attributed to a 16 per cent drop in fuel costs compared to the previous quarter, according to the trustee of City Gas Trust.
