American Gas Association Overview
Founded in 1918, AGA represents more than 200 local energy companies that deliver clean natural gas throughout the United States. There are more than 72 million residential, commercial and industrial natural gas customers in the U.S., of which 95 percent--just under 69 million customers--receive their gas from AGA members.
