UNITED CITIES GRANTED RATE INCREASE IN KANSAS

 UNITED CITIES GRANTED RATE INCREASE IN KANSAS
 BRENTWOOD, Tenn., Nov. 27 /PRNewswire/ -- United Cities Gas Co.


(NASDAQ: UCIT), the Nashville area-based natural and propane gas distributor, announced today that the Kansas Corporation Commission has granted the company a general rate increase of $7 million in annual revenues, representing a 16.6 percent overall increase for approximately 68,000 customers in southeastern and northeastern Kansas.
 The approved increase, which goes into effect December 1, is the result of an application filed before the Commission in May. Gene C. Koonce, United Cities' president and chief executive officer, said the company requested higher rates to offset the impact of increased operating expenses and safety-related investments.
 "Since the acquisition of Union Gas in December of 1989, we have worked diligently to improve customer service by providing increased training for our Kansas employees and reorganizing the operation to better respond to customer and community needs," said Koonce. "This is the first rate increase implemented since the acquisition."
 United Cities Gas Company has had a multi-state service area since its inception in the late 1920s and presently distributes natural and propane gas to approximately 290,000 customers in parts of nine states. The company is also engaged in other energy-related businesses.
