Service Charge  
Hope Gas incurs certain fixed costs each month regardless of the amount of gas used by its customers. The monthly service charge covers part of these ongoing costs. This charge includes such things as meter reading, billing, customer accounting, operating and maintenance expenses.
Service/Reconnect Charge
Each time the Company responds to a request to re-read a meter and the original read is determined to be accurate, to reconnect service, or to initiate service in a new or different name at an existing location and a premise visit is required, a charge of $30.00 shall apply.
Gas Recovery Reconnection Charge
The Public Service Commission of West Virginia allows the Company to charge a fee for customers who apply for service within eight (8) months following a previous discontinuance of service at the customer's request. This charge will be equal to the number of months elapsed after the discontinuance of service multiplied by $7.51 pipeline fixed recovery rate. 
Meter Reading
Meters are generally read each month. Bills are rendered monthly. If a meter is not read, usage will be estimated based on factors such as previous usage history, number of days in billing cycle, and the effects, if any, of abnormal weather conditions. The bill will indicate if an actual or estimated reading was used to determine the gas usage. 
Municipal Surcharge
A Municipal Surcharge is a tax or fee paid by Hope Gas to cities it serves. Hope Gas is permitted to recover this fee from residents of those cities.
Excise Tax
Many cities levy an excise tax on public utility bills paid by residents of those cities. In this instance, Hope Gas collects this tax for the cities.
Late Payment Charge
A late payment charge of 1% will be added to the net current amount unpaid on each bill where it is appropriate
