Many natural gas customers across Georgia will be paying more after state regulators approved a rate increase.

The Georgia Public Service Commission voted 5-0 Thursday to allow Atlanta Gas Light to raise rates by a total of $65.3 million.

That will add $2.54 to monthly gas bills for average residential customers.

Atlanta Gas Light maintains the pipes that deliver natural gas to 1.6 million customers across the state.

Charges are included in bills that customers pay to natural gas marketers.

Public Service Commissioner Chuck Eaton says the company needs money to expand service for a growing population.
