Citizens Gas provides service in Marion County. 

To compare average residential gas bills, see the IURC's monthly residential surveys.

Key components in a Citizens Gas bill include gas costs and base rates.

Gas Costs

Natural gas utilities buy gas for their customers in a competitive wholesale market. Indiana law allows utilities to adjust rates every three months to recover changes in those costs, which can go up or down. These costs comprise a significant portion of a residential bill and are recovered through the Gas Cost Adjustment (GCA) process.

  • Utilities may recover wholesale gas costs on a dollar-for-dollar basis but may not profit on them.
  • Before adjusting rates to reflect the costs, a utility must demonstrate that it has shopped prudently in the competitive market.
  • Each GCA filing requires OUCC review and IURC approval.

Citizens' most recent GCA (Cause No. 37399 GCA-154) was approved on May 25, 2022. It will affect bills for June, July, and August.

Base Rates

Base rates cover "non-gas" costs for a utility, including operational, maintenance, and capital costs.

  • The IURC approved current base rates for Citizens Gas in 2011.
  • To review the rate case's public file, please visit the IURC website and enter cause number 43975.
  • The OUCC issued an April 2011 news release to invite consumer comments.
