​​​​​​​​​​​Natural gas prices and other fuels

CenterPoint Energy is committed to delivering natural gas to customers safely, reliably and at reasonable prices. We work 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.​
