LAS VEGAS (AP) - The Public Utilities Commission of Nevada is collecting public comment about a Southwest Gas Corp. proposal to increase rates to pay for natural gas it purchased during the last year.

The 6 p.m. Wednesday consumer session at the commission office will focus on a proposed rate increase of $1.2 million, or 0.32 percent, in southern Nevada.

Las Vegas Review-Journal reports the increase would cost the average customer about 14 cents more per month in the winter.

The commission has scheduled a Nov. 6 hearing to discuss the filing.

The filing is unrelated to a separate filing the company made in May seeking 6.2 percent general rate hike to cover rising operating costs, wages, benefits and inflation.
