​Natural Gas Prices and Other Fuels

CenterPoint Energy works with a variety of suppliers, buying natural gas throughout the year on a competitive bid basis, a common utility practice to ensure reliable supplies and to take advantage of typically lower spring and summer natural gas prices.

The cost of gas on a customer's bill changes monthly depending on market prices, weather, the economy and supply and demand. Clean-burning natural gas costs less to use than any other energy source. In fact, natural gas is about half the cost of other fuels.

CenterPoint Energy is committed to delivering natural gas to customers safely, reliably and at reasonable prices. Learn how you can save money by using    energy efficient appliances fueled by natural gas throughout your home to heat water, dry clothes, cook and more. You can also compare appliance operating costs and emissions with our online cost calculators.
