Deferred Gas Cost (SF.BS.DeferredGasCost)

Deferred Gas Cost (SF.BS.DeferredGasCost) refers to the cost of gas already consumed but not yet charged to consumers. Gas utility companies are required to deliver supplies at a reasonable price to consumers, but rates to consumers might not reflect fluctuations in the wholesale gas purchasing market. Gas utility companies accumulate such costs and request reflection of the deferred costs as rate adjustments to regulators.
