ATMOS ENERGY TO APPEAL RATE CASE DECISION IN AMARILLO, TEXAS, SERVICE AREA

 ATMOS ENERGY TO APPEAL RATE CASE DECISION
 IN AMARILLO, TEXAS, SERVICE AREA
 DALLAS, June 3 /PRNewswire/ -- Atmos Energy Corporation (NYSE: ATO) said today that the Amarillo, Texas, city council voted to hold rates at their current level late Tuesday afternoon, denying the company's proposed $4.4 million rate increase. The city's decision is not final until a second vote, which is expected to occur before June 15, 1992. If Tuesday's decision by the city council is reaffirmed on the second vote, Atmos said it will file an appeal with the Railroad Commission of Texas.
 The Amarillo rate increase would impact about 60,500 customers. The company filed for the Amarillo increase on Feb. 11, 1992. The proposed 12 percent annual revenue increase is the first sought by the company since an increase was implemented in 1985. The company implemented $4.9 million of rate increases in its West Texas service area in late 1991.
 Atmos also has a $3.4 million annual rate increase pending before the Louisiana Public Service Commission for its Louisiana service territory.
 Atmos Energy Corporation of Dallas, provides natural gas service to more than one-half million customers in West Texas, Louisiana and Kentucky through its operating companies -- Energas Company, Trans Louisiana Gas Company and Western Kentucky Gas Company.
