There are many reasons for consumers to want natural gas: It is a stable and reliable supply; it costs less, and it means customers do not have to deal with the delivery truck aspect. Also, the fact that natural gas only produces half the carbon dioxide of fossil fuels makes it an environmentally friendly choice. The lower cost of natural gas has become particularly appealing over the last decade, with prices dropping 60 percent since 2008 thanks to skyrocketing supply choices.
