Huxley asked to conserve natural gas


HUXLEY (AP)--The central Iowa town of Huxley is being asked to turn down the heat.

Alliant Energy asked customers on Thursday to conserve natural gas because the town is running short.

Officials say demand has been high during this week of frigid cold, but the company isn't able to get enough natural gas into the community because of the way the pipelines flow into town.

Alliant Energy has asked customers to turn down thermostats and to not use fireplaces or appliances that use natural gas.

The request, which was made Thursday, runs through Friday afternoon.
