Facts about natural gas

Most of the natural gas consumed in the United States also is produced there. Canada provides much of the rest. In all, 34 states produce or have produced natural gas and natural gas supplies nearly one-fourth of all of the energy used in the United States. 

Gas utilities serve more than 68 million residential customers and more than 5 million commercial enterprises, according to the U.S. Energy Information Administration. In deregulated natural gas states, consumers and businesses have the power to choose a gas supplier. This enables people to compare natural gas prices and options and select the best plan.

Natural gas deregulation

Natural gas distribution companies have always been subject to regulation by state and local governments. In 1989, Congress completed the process of deregulating the price of natural gas at the wellhead by passing the Natural Gas Wellhead Decontrol Act. In deregulation of the natural gas and electric industries, only the price of the commodity supply has been opened to competition. This means consumers in many states can choose a supplier for their natural gas and/or electricity. The transmission and distribution of natural gas and electricity are not open to choice, and the price for those services continues to be set by state and federally approved tariffs. Residents in deregulated areas have access to a number of energy suppliers that offer alternative prices, plans and customer service options. You can choose the natural gas supplier of your choice and still pay your gas bill directly to your existing utility company.

This process to choose my supplier just gets easier every time.. I like to be able to help the environment while I save dollars. I especially like that I have a choice in the energy marketplace -- it's like I have a vote in the industry.
