    Did anyone else receive the letter from Washington Gas re: offer for fixed price of $0.43 per Therm through March 2020 meter read date?
    Have somebody looked into the possible savings for this?
    Thanks.

    My 2cents - anyone offering a "deal" is out to make money off of you. There is always a hook and a gimmick.

    I received one too with the same offer except it was a different gas company.

    Several years ago we received this offer at another home. We studied it and did the math as we were skeptical as well. We decided to sign up because it did save us money. Do the math. It may or may not be a good deal here now.

    Take a look at future price forecasts for natural gas provided by the government and see if it makes sense to lock in based on the data and outlook over the next 2 years. Look at the last graph on that page by scrolling it to the left or click on the dots in the top-right of the graph window. The text on the page also has info on Natural gas futures.

    I think the difference is who is the supplier of your gas, who delivers the gas, how do you get the bills (separately or together), who is responsible for customer service, etc.
    Maybe you will save few $ with another supplier company, but what about the billing and customer service? I think this is part of the so called "Customer Choice" program, that was created to allow for competition of suppliers.
