Natural gas comes to most consumers through interstate pipelines and local utility systems. They have franchises from state or local bodies, and have long been regulated. The producers who find the gas have not been regulated because more than 5,000 of them compete vigorously — and free competition is the best of all price controls. Yet these producers have recently been singled out for Federal controls and price- fixing. This is a step without peacetime precedent— to price-fix a consumer,product at its source. It is a step that deeply disturbs many Americans, including the undersigned committee. They believe the proposed controls are against the public interest and can benefit no one. They believe the issue goes far beyond gas. It goes to the roots of America's greatness. They believe the controls plan ia unwise for many reasons. /( is Unnecessary because gas supplies have tripled in sixteen years. And costs to consumers have risen a nation-wide average of only onereleventh as much as the cost of living. It IS DangerGUS because it could easily be the first step toward Federal controls on coal or oil— or lumber or grain or jour business. • it IS Llntair because it singles out one competitive industry for such controls. It iS Shortsighted because it stifles the bold and risky exploring that's needed to assure adequate supplies.
