Natural Gas Falls to Shoulder Month Rate
A great time to switch natural gas providers is during a shoulder month. The spring and fall bring milder weather that drives down natural gas demand. As energy prices fall, industry experts call this dip the “shoulder months”. So, the optimal time to lock in a cheap natural gas rate with a fixed rate is right around the corner. So, let’s compare a few plans as the shoulder month rate count down starts.
