    TULSA, Okla., July 17 /EMWNews/ -- The board of directors

for the general partner of Magellan Midstream Holdings, L.P. (NYSE: MGG)

has increased the partnership's quarterly cash distribution to 33.75 cents

per unit for the period April 1 through June 30, 2008, representing its

tenth consecutive quarterly distribution increase.

    The second-quarter distribution represents a 22% increase over the

second-quarter 2007 distribution of 27.6 cents and a 5% increase over the

first-quarter 2008 distribution of 32.25 cents per unit.
