City gas is a term used in some parts of the world, for instance Egypt, India, Japan, Korea, to refer to gas distributed to customers through a local distribution system, downstream of the City Gate. Such customers will be a mixture of residential, commercial and industrial depending on particular local circumstances but will, typically, exclude power generators. In the past city gas may have been gas manufactured from coal and oil but is now predominantly natural gas. See also Town Gas.City Gate The point at which a local distribution system, often based on one town or city, accepts gas from a transmission company or system. A transfer price at this point is called a City Gate Price.
