ATMOS ENERGY CORPORATION RECEIVES RATE INCREASE FOR AMARILLO, TEXAS, SERVICE AREA

 DALLAS, Nov. 25 ~PRNewswire~ -- Atmos Energy Corporation (NYSE: ATO) announced today that it received approval from the Railroad Commission of Texas to implement an annual rate increase of approximately $2.1 million in its Amarillo, Texas, service area, effective today.
 Atmos had requested a $4.4 million annual revenue increase, which was denied by the Amarillo City Council in June. The company appealed the decision to the Railroad Commission, which granted an interim rate increase of $700,000 on an annual basis effective in June. The rate increase affects about 60,500 customers.
 "The decision by the Railroad Commission allows the company to implement the new rates in time for the winter heating season. This increase and the approximately $1 million increase granted in Atmos' Louisiana service area in September will have a positive effect on earnings for 1993," said Charles Vaughan, Atmos chairman, president and chief executive officer.
 Vaughan said the company continually evaluates its rates of return.
 Atmos Energy Corporation of Dallas, Texas, 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.
