Consumers can see how their natural gas utility's rate compares to other suppliers' prices on PAGasSwitch, an online feature from the state Public Utility Commission.

Gas suppliers and their offers are listed for each utility's service territory on the www.puc.pa.gov website, the regulatory agency said on Monday.

In the Pittsburgh area, Columbia Gas of Pennsylvania has 14 competing offers to its rate of 42.79 cents per therm of gas. Peoples Natural Gas Co. has three alternate suppliers in its territory, and Equitable Gas and Peoples TWP have none.

Consumers have had the ability to choose a gas supplier other than their local utility since 1999.

The state lists electric choices at www.papowerswitch.com.
