    Not sure how it goes for you folks in the US, but I've dealt with the energy market for 12 years. When I started 12 years ago, the market had only recently been de-regulated, and was at 9.2 cents per cubic meter, locking people in at 11 cents. By the time I quit the industry, we were locking in people at 35 cents per cubic meter while the rates were at 28 cents.

    We just hit 9.4 cents in April, an all-time low in over a decade.

    Lock in with a gas supplier, folks. It's all uphill from here.

    We don't pay for natural gas here. We sank a pipeline into NJ about 150 years ago and pump it over. Plus the NJ governor is an everlasting supply of methane.
