The Kansas Corporation Commission is holding
public hearings to discuss the Kansas Gas Service request for a 76
million-dollar rate increase.

On January 31st, the Topeka utility filed an application
requesting an annual rate increase for natural gas service of 44
percent.

The K-C-C says the hike would only affect the cost of delivery
of gas, a fixed price on monthly bills. Residential customers would
pay an extra ten-dollars-50 cents. General service customers would
see their bills increase more than 31 dollars.

Customers are encouraged to attend one of two public hearings in
the next two weeks. The K-C-C will also accept written comments
from K-G-S customers through August 15th.
