Natural gas is a fossil fuel like oil and coal. Natural gas produces almost a quarter of the energy consumed in the United States. Natural gas is used to provide energy for homes, commercial buildings and utility plants. Since, the U.S. produces a lot of the natural gas it consumes, and imports most of the remainder from Canada, the supply of natural gas is largely insulated from geopolitical risk.

Natural gas is a popular fuel choice because it burns cleaner, hotter, and brighter than other fossil fuels like coal and oil. Natural gas is also safe and reliable. Because natural gas pipes are buried safely underground you aren’t likely to: lose service during stormy weather, run out of fuel, or have to arrange for deliveries.
