How do I get the best gas deals in NSW?

When comparing natural gas providers, there are a few key things to consider for the best deal. Take into account:

  • Your usage. Gas is usually based on block pricing, with unit pricing falling the more gas you use in a single day. If you have consistently high usage, you might look for a provider with cheaper subsequent blocks.
  • Supply charges. These are charged just for being connected and don't depend on usage. If you have very low daily usage, a low supply charge could be a priority.
  • Discounts/benefit periods. Some plans come with discounts that depend on certain conditions (e.g. paying on time) or only last 12 months. Watch out for plans that depend on vanishing discounts for their low prices.
