Paying Your Gas Bill
By Patti Hutchison
  

1     Do you use natural gas in your home? Some people heat with gas. There are appliances that run on gas, also. Perhaps you have a gas stove. Water heaters and clothes dryers can also use natural gas.
 
2     If you use gas in your home, you guessed it; you'll have to pay for it. You will most likely get a gas bill every month. The gas company pipes the gas into your home so that you can use it. You have to pay for this service.
 
3     Like any other bill, you should take time to study your gas bill before you pay it. Make sure your name and address are written correctly. Take note of the service period dates. See that they gave you credit for paying last month's bill.
 
4     Be sure to study the meter readings. If you use gas, you will have a gas meter somewhere near your home. It measures how much gas you use. Someone from the company comes and reads the meter to see how much gas you have used. Gas is measured in units called cubic feet. Your bill should show last month's meter reading as well as this month's. The difference between the two of them is the total amount of gas you used this month.
