ROANOKE, Va., Aug. 2, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Resources, Inc. (Nasdaq:RGCO) announced consolidated Company earnings of $52,298 or $0.01 per average share outstanding for the quarter ended June 30, 2012. This compares to consolidated earnings of $184,617 or $0.04 per average share outstanding for the quarter ended June 30, 2011. President, Chairman and CEO John Williamson attributed the lower earnings to a decline in space heating sales volumes as a result of warm weather.

Williamson attributed the lower year-over-year earnings primarily to the effect of significantly warmer weather during the winter heating season and higher depreciation expense associated with the Company's pipeline replacement program.
