How to Get Your Gas Meter Paid
It’s the best time of year to pay your gas meter and it doesn’t have to cost a dime, according to a report from the National Association of Gas Meter Installers (NAMIG).
The NAMIG survey found that more than 4.7 million Americans pay their meter bills this year and that more people than ever before have an interest in doing so.
The gas meter market is in its infancy and there are still a number of issues to be worked out, but NAMIP is optimistic that things will start to improve as more gas meters go on sale this year.
“The gas-meter market is growing in popularity, and we expect it to continue to grow in the coming years,” NAMIC President and CEO Kevin Kowalski said.
“The most exciting news is that we are seeing gas-metering adoption in areas where there is a large population of consumers, such as rural areas and small towns.”
We also anticipate that the number of gas meters installed will increase in many areas as more consumers adopt the technology.
The growing demand for gas meters is expected to be met with increased investment by retailers, utilities, and consumers in order to make sure consumers are getting the right gas, which in turn will benefit our customers.
“Gas-metered meters are the primary way people can pay their gas bills, which are typically charged to their vehicles, and are typically located at the curb or at a meter on the side of the road.
Consumers typically pay their bills at the meter or at the pump, which is the most convenient way to pay.
A growing number of retailers have introduced gas-based services, including Costco, Wal-Mart, and Home Depot, as well as more traditional service providers, such to gas stations, supermarkets, and other retailers.
Gas meters are installed by the meter owner and have an estimated lifetime of up to 30 years.
Gas meters are sold by a company called the retail provider or dealer.
NAMIC surveyed gas meter installers nationwide in May to determine how they are meeting their customers’ gas meter demand.
In all, the survey found about 3.6 million people pay their meters.
“We are confident that gas-meter owners will continue to be a key player in the market, and as the industry moves forward, gas-maters will continue serving customers.””
Gas meter owners have the best interest of their customers at heart, and their continued growth is a positive development,” said NAMICLE President and Chief Operating Officer Mike Schleif.
“We are confident that gas-meter owners will continue to be a key player in the market, and as the industry moves forward, gas-maters will continue serving customers.”
