WOODBURY - Contrary to a report News 12 Long Island brought you earlier this month, officials are telling residents their LIPA bill may actually be going down.

LIPA says its power supply charge will go down by 16 percent in April.

According to LIPA officials, it was originally thought the winter fuel costs would drive prices up.

However, about $13 is expected to be knocked off the average bill.

Officials say the charge varies from month to month, so May's bill might not have the same savings.
