Natural Gas Prices - Where Your Dollar Goes

Every dollar on your natural gas bill can be divided into three parts: Cost of natural gas; operations, maintenance and delivery; and taxes.*

  • ​CenterPoint Energy passes its cost of gas - about 42 cents - on to you without markup.
  • About 49 cents goes towards the cost of bringing gas to your home, maintaining a safe and reliable system and investing in new infrastructure and technology.
  • Taxes account for the remaining nine cents.
​*The costs listed are averages across CenterPoint Energy Resources Corporation service territories in the south and are for illustration purposes only. Specific costs are found on page 2 of your natural gas bill.
