Memphis owns and operates its own public utility company which sells or resells electricity, natural gas and water. Along with those services we get sewer services and some billing of other city services.
The utility is called MLG&W and it can only be mismanaged. It cannot lose money if properly managed.
So, quite predictably, they raised rates on natural gas in the same month that Memphis has its coldest (coolest) temperatures. Not only is your utility bill higher because of consumption, but it is also higher because of new rates.
Here’s a web site devoted to all the maladies that make Memphis so special.
