The holiday season.  For most people, that means stretching already thin budgets to accommodate holiday shopping -- gifts, toys, the works.

But what if there was something you could shop for that could actually save you money?  There is, in states like Georgia where customers can choose their energy provider.

For over 10 years, Georgians have had a choice in their natural gas provider, but many customers have not shopped around, or haven't shopped since the market opened.

That means customers aren't getting the best deal, and are paying too much for their natural gas supply.  Switching your natural gas provider -- which takes just a few minutes with® -- can lower your gas bill and put more money in your pocket -- something we all need this time of year.

For example, using, Atlanta Gas Light customers can find rates as low as just over 51¢/therm.  A year ago, average rates were nearly 20% higher, meaning if you haven't shopped around for a low natural gas rate in a while, you're probably paying too much money.
