  1. I have been laid off from work and having problems paying all of the bill. I have applied for LIHEAP but haven’t heard back yet. Also will make payment on bill today at local office. Thank You DB Hampton

  2. I do not get paid until April 13th-I will pay in full $141.29 that is due on my account through electronic payment. My phone has been shut off so I am having to contact you via email. Please allow me this time so I do not get disconnected.

  3. 200$ a monthfor gas ? really..every month ? no they wont help and i would like an itemized bill how is it legal for a company to just send u a price for their service without a true breakdown of that service?…i asked for an extension they said no i told them i have a small child they said no….. i told them i lost my job..again no ..there is no help for me untill maybe the 4th …

  4. DONT trust them —- turned off service without notifying me for balance due, – they said they mailed a letter but never received on – at least call me – now paid balance and have to wait a full day to have service restored – SERVICE SUCKS – so i go without heat and hot water until tomorrow – they are still in the neighborhood, saw the truck just about 1 huor ago and they cannot come back – RIP OFF!!! just to get a reconnect fee – if the driver is still in my neighborhood – send him back . He could of rang the doorbell before turning it off – the worst customer service and can care less about customers. not even a phone call – no customer courtesy!!
