What is a marketer?

Gas marketers (sometimes called brokers) are independent suppliers who purchase and supply the commodity portion of your gas energy. Instead of buying the commodity from the utility, you can purchase it directly from the marketer. The commodity is the actual product (natural gas) that is consumed. You will still use the utility company for the delivery or transportation of the commodity. At today’s rates, the commodity portion is approximately 50% to 75% of your overall gas costs.
