Your Gas Dollar

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 half of your total bill – on to you without any mark-up.
  • About 38 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 12 cents.
