Texas governor calls for investigation of natural gas utility

The Dallas skyline is barely visible from Winfrey Point in Dallas on Dec. 22, 2022. Temperatures dropped from 45 degrees at 9 a.m. to 25 degrees shortly before noon.


Texas Gov. Greg Abbott wants to know more about what led Dallas-based Atmos Energy to ask its 2 million customers in the state to conserve their gas use by lowering their thermostats during the recent cold spell.

He has asked the attorney general and the head of the Railroad Commission to investigate the matter according to the Texas Tribune.
