Georgia Natural Gas Guide

Bookmark this page for the latest rate info each month

By Clark Howard

August 2014:

There are 2 low-cost price leaders this month for fixed rates, according to the Georgia Public Service Commission (GA PSC). They are True Natural Gas and Fireside Natural Gas.

True Natural Gas is advertising a rate of .575 this month, while Fireside is at .610.

A typical True customer who locks in this month can expect to pay $775 over 12 months. Meanwhile, the typical Fireside customer can expect to pay $788 annually if they lock in this month. (By the way, a "typical" customer is defined as someone using 717 therms over the course of 12 months.)

Again, these are the lowest rates as determined by the GA PSC for the month of August 2014.

Bit if you can, I'd suggest waiting one more month to lock in. Research suggests the best month to lock in is September. We'll see if that proves to be true again this year.

Switching your natural gas company is easy and can be done over the phone or online. It really is that simple. But maybe you're concerned about switching, you're out contract, and you're happy with your current company. In that case, try giving them a call to see if they'll match any of this month's rates from the providers I named above.

Happy shopping!
