  1. I owe Mountaineer Gas 1600.00. I have been trying to pay this off. Was told in July that I owed a little over $1000.00. Gas was shut off because I could not pay total amount. Extra charges were tacked on (was on budget and they added on the amount of money I went over). I called to try and work out a payment arrangement and explained that my hours were cut and was told that with the total bill, disconnect fee AND reconnect fee I owed over $1800.00. I was only able to pay $200 that day and plan on paying $500 next week, but still not enough. Have an appointment with my county’s Salvation Army to see if they can assist me, but not holding out much hope since I’m not considered “low income”. I don’t know what to do.

    • Give up and switch to electric. Mountaineer Gas thinks it is a K-Mart lay away department when it comes to payment arrangements. They want money now to make a payment arrangement. It does not matter if you have always paid or not. Their policy makers apparently get paid to make payments as diffucult as possible for the consumer. They are like every other monopoly with no competition in the area. Just bend over and take it like a ……..

  2. What a sad company.I asked for a four day extension for a $167.00 bill.I planned to pay in full.They refused.I wish WV companies would treat costumers right.I grew up in California and they always work with customers.

  3. I just got a Collection Notice from a collection agency for someone else with the same last name. It was mailed to my address and I can’t get hold of anyone at Mountaineer Gas to get this straightened out. Turns out the dirt-bag the bill is for used my address to apply for a Moose Membership so his girlfriend wouldn’t find out and kick his dead-beat butt out. I admit the dirtbag is related to me but DOES NOT live with me and owes me $20,000 so I don’t have any more to do with him if I can avoid it. I have informed him I will put his rear in jail if he ever does this again! I have perfect credit but this could affect me.. No one is answering the phone and it’s 10:30 a.m. Mountaineer Gas needs to contact me before I am forced to go to a lawyer. Lets get this worked out.
