Cost of Gas Price Increase - Residential - Massachusetts Gas - Liberty
Cost of Gas Price Information
The cost of natural gas can fluctuate from month to month based on many different factors. We understand that the price of natural gas can create a hardship for some of our customers. Below you will find information about what typically causes price fluctuations and how we are here to help.
Liberty purchases the gas we deliver to our customers on the open natural gas market.
The actual cost of natural gas is heavily regulated by the Department of Public Utilities and is not determined by Liberty, it is determined by the market conditions. The cost is then passed directly to customers; Liberty does not earn a profit from it.
When natural gas prices fluctuate, it's usually the result of supply versus demand at a specific geographic location. If natural gas supply is low, or if consumption is high, the cost per therm of natural gas will rise. Likewise, when supply is high or demand is low, the price per therm will fall.
