Queensland has the most expensive gas in the country
It’s not just us saying that. The Australian government deemed Queensland’s gas the most expensive in the country in the Gas Price Trends Review Report 2017. Households in Queensland got far from one of the best deals in the country. Whereas other states paid, on average, 2.9 cents per megajoule of gas they used, those in Queensland had to pay a whopping 6.4 cents. That’s more than double the national average, and nearly two cents more than the next most expensive state, South Australia. You might be asking what has caused Queensland to pay so much more for there mains gas? It sort of comes down to basic economics, supply and demand. It’s both harder for providers to get the gas supply to Queensland, and there’s not as much demand for mains gas, to begin with. Distribution costs make up a bulk of what you pay for your gas connection in Queensland. According to Jim Snow, an analyst from the energy consultancy firm Oakley Greenwood, 3.78 cents of the 6.4 cents per megajoule you pay for your gas is made up by distribution costs.
The next biggest component of your gas bill is how much you have to pay in retail costs. If you’re using mains gas in Queensland, you’re going to be on one of two retailers: AGL or Origin. Despite the natural gas market being deregulated in Queensland, no-one else has gotten involved. AGL and Origin take 1.5 cents per megajoule out of this 6.4 cents paid out by Queenslanders for their business or residential gas. This might not seem like a huge amount, but it’s double the national average of 0.7 cents. These super high gas prices lead Ian Jarratt from the Queensland Consumers Association:
“I'd be thinking in the future — if and when this gas stove goes or the hot water system goes, see whether I can do anything in terms of changing to electricity or bottled gas”
If you’re interested in starting to heat your stove or hot water with your power rather than your gas make sure you give Electricity Monster a call. Once you’ve made that decision we can help you out with a great rate on one of our top energy plans.

Queensland's gas landscape
Even though natural gas isn’t the most popular energy source in the state, it does have a very long history in Queensland. The first instance of natural gas being discovered in Queensland dates back to the year 1900, in a small outback town called Roma. While drilling into a water well, the lucky excavators managed to strike the first natural gas field discovered in Australia. By 1969 Roma was home to Australia’s first natural gas pipeline. This over four hundred kilometre long pipeline connected the remote town to Brisbane on the east coast. Having access to natural gas was a first for any state capital in Australia, and this move put Queensland at the front of natural gas in the country. In 1996 this pipeline received a massive extension, being extended by a further seven hundred and fifty kilometres to connect with the Ballera gas fields.
Outside of natural gas, Queensland is also a national leader in coal seam gas. The coal seam gas industry got started in 1996 at the Dawson Valley. Within a decade coal seam gas took over the gas market in Queensland. As of 2005, it was believed that Queensland had 95% of Australia's available resources in terms of coal seam gas. By the 2009/2010 financial year, the coal seam gas industry in Queensland had exploded even further, growing by 43%. Overall coal seam gas production had grown from 0 petajoules in 1995, to a massive 254 petajoules in 2012, then blowing out even further to 979 petajoules in 2016. The gigantic growth in coal seam gas extraction in Queensland is a real testament to the most resource-rich state in Australia.
The great thing about Queensland is that it’s always been at the forefront of Australia’s energy concern. Not only was it the originator of natural gas, it was also the first state in the country to have any electricity at all. Despite its wealth of resources, however, Queenslanders really aren’t getting top deals on their own energy. In a state with more access to the raw ingredients that power our homes and businesses, don’t you think the people in that state should benefit the most from these assets? Here at Electricity Monster, that’s exactly what we think, that’s why we’re committed to finding Queenslanders the sharpest rates we have available. Want to learn more?

What is a gas usage charge?
Your gas usage charge is pretty self-explanatory, it’s what you will be charged for using your gas. With most gas retailers, this will be where most of your bill comes from. A larger gas bill can sometimes be the result of using too much gas.
What is a gas supply charge?
Your gas usage charge can vary based on how much gas you use, but your gas supply charge will stay fixed regardless of how much gas you use. You pay this to retain your gas connection, and it’s usually a fixed amount somewhere in the ballpark of dollars per day.
What is a gas tariff?
Gas usually works a little differently from power. Whereas power tariffs dictate how much you will pay for your energy usage at different times of day, gas usage is usually charged in blocks depending on how much total gas you use.
What is a pay on time discount?
One thing gas providers like is when you pay your bill on time. In order to get you to do this, many providers offer a pay-on-time discount. If you pay you full on time and in full you will receive a discount, usually on your electricity usage charge, or sometimes both your usage and supply charges.
What is a direct debit discount?
This works in a very similar way to a pay-on-time discount. Paying via direct debit ensures that a gas retailer gets paid every time. This is why they offer a direct debit discount to encourage you to pay.
What is a discount benefit period?
This is how long an offer such as a direct debit discount or a pay-on-time discount is offered for. Once this period expires you’ll be paying full standing rates for your gas. Call us when this happens and we can get you on a sharp rate again.
What if I can't pay my gas bill?
It’s never nice knowing you can’t pay your bills. If they’re getting out of hand give us a call at Electricity Monster, we can help you find a more cost-effective rate.
What is Bill Smoothing?
Bill smoothing has become increasingly popular in recent years. This is a good option if you’re averse to surprises. Bill smoothing will make it so your bills are usually about the same size. This could mean you pay more for bills at one time of the year, but less at other times.
