The Illinois Commerce Commission has ruled that Nicor Gas must refund customers more than $72 million in a more than decade-old accounting scandal.

The figure is $9 million more than Nicor Gas agreed to pay in a February 2012 settlement. The extra money comes after the Citizens Utility Board and Illinois Attorney General continued fighting the case. Crain's Chicago Business reports that a Nicor spokeswoman said the company would consider appealing the commission's action Wednesday. The Citizens Utility Board said it would appeal because customers deserve more.
