Gas Cost FAQ

Is Washington Gas setting the price of natural gas?

No. Natural gas is a commodity and its price is determined by the market, based on several factors including production, storage, weather and the economy. When we buy gas on your behalf, we charge you exactly what we paid for it – we are not allowed to mark it up, by regulation of the various Public Service Commissions in the District of Columbia, Maryland and Virginia.

What can you do to control your gas costs?

Washington Gas offers customers a variety of tools to lower their energy costs through its Washington Gas Cares and Washington Area Fuel Fund (WAFF) program. Washington Gas customers have access to rebates on high efficiency appliances, insulation, and programmable thermostats and provides access to energy audit opportunities.
