Natural gas is an affordable, clean, convenient, domestic, and versatile fuel source...

Who hasn’t scrambled to order oil before a big snow storm? Or sat at home waiting for a delivery and then had to shovel a path so it can be made? The continuous supply of natural gas to your home eliminates many of the hassles associated with other fuels.
