This commercial, produced by Dallas-based firm Visual Presentations for Lone Star Gas, features Dominique Russo, owner and head chef of Dominique's, one of Dallas' finest restaurants. Whether cooking at home or in his restaurant, only a gas range provides Dominique with the response and control he needs to assure the best results in his recipes.

The Lone Star Gas Company was started in 1909 by drilling-company and well-owners, George W. Crawford and M.C. Treat. Originally a pipeline company in partnership with Corsicana Refining, it was established to carry natural gas to Dallas and East Texas. The first of a series of expansions occurred in 1927 when Lone Star Gas purchased the Dallas Gas Company. After nearly a century of mergers, acquisitions, and buyouts, the company that began as Lone Star Gas is now part of the Energy Future Holdings Corp.
