5. Locking in Prices No Promise to Cut Bills
Homeowners who signed on last winter with an energy marketer guaranteeing a fixed natural-gas price for the remainder of the year, or longer, may be kicking themselves right now.

The price of natural gas has fallen by more than 60 percent since wintertime highs above $15 per 1,000 cubic feet, and the long-term contracts available today are considerably cheaper.

For example, Columbia Gas of Ohio customers can today sign up for a one-year supply contract with Shell Energy Services and pay $12.70 per 1,000 cubic feet. Six months ago, Shell was offering a one-year fixed price of $15.60.

So is now a good time to lock-in a price for natural gas?
