EQUITABLE GAS COMPANY TO REDUCE RATES

 EQUITABLE GAS COMPANY TO REDUCE RATES
 PITTSBURGH, Aug. 6 /PRNewswire/ -- Equitable Gas Company's filing to


reduce its purchased natural gas cost rate by $11.7 million annually was approved today by the Pennsylvania Public Utility Commission (PUC).
 The savings result from Equitable's continuing efforts to obtain the lowest cost natural gas supplies available. The natural gas cost reduction, with other rate adjustments, will lower the average residential bill by approximately $20 per year beginning Oct. 1.
 Today's announcement follows a $23 per year decrease in Equitable's average bill that took effect July 3.
 Major Pennsylvania natural gas companies are required to file purchased natural gas cost rates annually with the PUC. These costs make up more than 50 percent of the customer's bill, and are passed through on a dollar-for-dollar basis with no profit to the company.
