The Kansas City Star on February 16, 2007 reported on the lowering prices of natural gas. With lower natural gas prices and unseasonably warm weather early this winter the forecast is that gasheating customers will pay $950 as compared to $1,339 last year. At Kansas Gas Service, last year, the price of 1,000 cubic feet of gas was $11.85; this has been reduced by 23.3108 percent. (Round your answers to 2 decimal places.
