“Natural gas comprises almost one-fourth of all primary energy used in the U.S. and supports the  employment of nearly 3 million Americans in all 50 states.”

Natural gas serves nearly 66.7 million homes; 5.4 millio  businesses like hotels, restaurants, hospitals, schools and supermarkets; 192,000 factories; and 1,900 electric generating units. On a daily basis, the average U.S. home uses 196 cubic feet of natural gas.  

Natural gas comprises almost one-fourth of all primary energy used in the U.S. and is directly linked to jobs and economic health. The natural gas industry supports the employment of nearly 3 million Americans in all 50 states.  

Residential space heating and water heating cost analyses show that natural gas costs less to use than other major home energy sources. Households that use natural gas appliances for heating,   water heating, cooking and clothes drying spend an average of $840 less per year than homes using electric appliances.  

Fertilizer used to grow crops is composed almost entirely of natural gas components, so U.S. agricultural producers rely on an affordable, stable supply of natural gas.  

Natural gas utilities do not earn a profit on the natural gas they deliver. They earn their revenues from the service and delivery fees they charge customers to transport the natural gas to them.  This fee is directly linked to the volume of natural gas consumed, rather than the price of natural gas being delivered.
