Afternoon TEA: Natural gas helps Americans stretch their budgets

Did you know?
Households that use natural gas for heating, cooking and other appliances save an average $879 per year compared to homes using electricity for such appliances.
That may not sound like a lot, but we’ve all come to realize just how much the little things really matter.
Yet, every day, we hear more and more extreme schemes that would cost Americans in a big way—bans on natural gas exploration, the outlandish Green New Deal that could cost us all thousands of dollars from new government mandates and crazy local measures like this one.
In these tough times, there’s no extra room in our budgets to pay for those kinds of restrictive policies and even $879 in savings can make a huge difference. It could cover the cost of a couple months’ groceries or health insurance, or the better part of a month’s mortgage payment or rent. That’s real savings for American households. That’s why we are supporting projects like this which will help lower costs for everyday Americans.
