The Interior Gas Utility continues to slowly add customers, with 21 new clients having turned on gas so far this year.

New government subsidies are becoming available to people willing to convert to cleaner-burning natural gas. The utility also is looking for new gas suppliers. The current supplier, Hilcorp, has said not to count on gas after 2032.
