First year cheaper, second year wow

The fee for this third party provider is double my actual gas bill from PSEG. Was never paying more than 80 per month before switching to them, and wasnt for the first year. Second year? The charge for using them was 80 dollars and my actual energy use was 40. Huge mistake switching to them. Ive promptly switched back.
