LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) — Columbia Gas Co.’s 114,000 residential customers will have to pay higher rates to make up for the increased cost of a pipeline to the Toyota Motor Corp. in Scott County. The pipeline was to cost $6 million and was to be financed by the state, according to provisions in the state’s $125 million package of incentives to Toyota. But the cost is now $9.8 million, with the cost picked up by Columbia’s residential customers.
