The city of Long Beach is offering a one-time $100 gas credit for customers struggling to pay high natural gas bills.

Why it matters: With soaring natural gas prices, the city of Long Beach has been working to provide relief to utility customers.

What has the city done to help? The Long Beach Utilities Commission on Thursday approved a $575,000 new gas bill assistance program to help struggling customers. This comes after the commission also rolled out a $7.5 million relief fund for utility customers. Under that program, customers would automatically receive a $45 gas credit on their next monthly bill and low-income, seniors and residents with disabilities would get up to $200 in additional assistance.
