Atmos Energy Addresses Customer Bills Following Historic Winter Storms

“Atmos Energy understands customer concerns that  the recent extreme weather may affect their natural gas bills, so we want to assure customers that bills in the near-term will not include any of the unusually high gas prices from the historic  winter storms. 

Atmos Energy does not set the market pricing for natural gas. There is no profit added to the gas  cost. We have been and will continue working with regulators to find solutions that will minimize the impact on monthly bills. Until those solutions are identified, the gas cost portion of  a customer’s bill will reflect normal, seasonal gas prices. 

February and March bills may still be higher than recent months based on the amount of gas used during the bitterly cold weather.”
