Natural gas and other fuels
Natural gas is your best energy value
If you've chosen natural gas, you can relax, knowing that you have made a smart decision for your bottom line. And by selecting high-efficiency equipment, your energy dollar will go even further.
Reasonable, competitive prices:
- Historically, natural gas costs have been consistently lower than propane and No. 2 oil.
- For space heating and processing requirements, natural gas remains a much better value than electricity even when considering equipment efficiency.
- CenterPoint Energy has the expertise and experience to buy natural gas at reasonable prices for the best energy value. We work with approximately 20 of the largest suppliers in the U.S. and Canada to buy gas each month on a competitive bid basis.
- CenterPoint Energy's natural gas prices have been significantly lower than the New York Mercantile Exchange (NYMEX) prices in recent months.
The future looks good
Rest assured that natural gas reserves are plentiful. To supplement current reserves, liquefied natural gas is expected to provide more of the U.S. natural gas supply in the future, which will help keep prices competitive.
