Natural gas is the clean fuel that heats millions of homes across the United States.
Throughout most of America’s modern history, consumers were required to pay their gas bill no matter what the utility charged — the cost was just a fact of life. But since gas deregulation, consumers in certain states have the power to choose their own gas supplier. Having the ability to choose a gas provider means that consumers can shop for and select a gas plan with the best rate and contract length to meet their needs. Some providers even offer perks for picking their plans like gift cards or airline miles.
If you’re lucky enough to live in one of the states that has adopted natural gas deregulation, it makes a lot of financial sense to take a look at your gas plan a few times a year to find out if you’re paying more than you should be.
It’s a competitive business, so other companies may offer a much lower rate than the one you’re currently paying.
