Over the past year, you’ve undoubtedly noticed the increasing prices of many everyday goods and services such as groceries and gasoline. Similarly, natural gas prices have also increased. On average, wholesale natural gas prices have been more than double what they were last year. Georgia Natural Gas wants to ensure our customers have access to natural gas. If you are concerned about paying your natural gas bill or missing a payment, there are several energy assistance funds from various programs and agencies you may qualify for.

If you need help understanding all of the available options, you can contact Atlanta Gas Light for additional assistance by calling 877-427-4321.
