Amarillo --      The city of Amarillo says Atmos energy is asking to raise Amarillo's base rate by almost 20-percent.
    Today, the Amarillo city commission said no.
    The city has delayed the increase for three months.
    They want time to negotiate with Atmos.
    The city is concerned about the new way Atmos determines rates.
    They say it's now determined based on West Texas as a whole, not just Amarillo.
    And we're picking up the cost for other areas that use more energy.
