Gas Bills

I have compiled the gas bills from Luminant and compared against the prior year prices from CenterPoint and, by making this change as of last November 1st, we have cut our gas costs by approximately $50,000.  I do not have current year CenterPoint prices to use as a benchmark therefore I used the prior year rates to calculate this reduction so the savings are likely slightly lower because I think CenterPoint did drop their prices sometime this year.

It is important to note that natural gas prices are at the lowest levels we’ve seen in the past 5 years and are not expected to rise in the foreseeable future.  This means a comparison going forward against the utility prices will not yield as dramatic a savings as in the beginning of the contract Dad’s Club entered into with Luminant Energy.

That reduction in cost gives us additional capital to make critical repairs.
