Business Headlines: Former Patriot’s New Adventure; Cheaper Natural Gas
BOSTON (CBS) – There’s life after the NFL for former Patriots linebacker Matt Chatham.
Chatham enrolled at the Harvard Business School for a week as part of the NFL Business and Management Entrepreneurial Program.
It’s a cool setup that introduces former players to the possibility of starting their own business.
But Chatham decided that a week of school wasn’t enough and enrolled in Babson full-time.
Natural gas customers could save big this year.
NStar says natural gas customers could see as much as a 16-percent drop this winter.
If NStar’s rate cut is approved by the state, customers would save as much as $15 a month – $30 less than last winter.
National Grid has filed a similar proposal with the state’s Department of Public Utilities.
GAS PRICES UP
But gasoline prices continue to rise, for the fifth week in a row.
According to AAA Southern New England, the average price for a gallon of regular is up two cents more than last week to $3.42.
That’s up 18 cents from a month ago.
Crude oil prices have been skyrocketing on fears of global unrest in oil-rich Iran and Nigeria.
