Gasoline Price Increased Here Hagerstown and Washington county motorists are paying a half- ceiu a gallon more for gasoline these days. The increase went into effect Monday at all filling stations in this area. Operators contacted yesterday said that all major companies made the boost. Prices of! gasoline locally, depending upon the "brand name" range from 22 cents to 25 cents per gallon. The increase in the wholesale price became effective March 1 but it was not passed on to the consumer until this past Monday. lu most places the half-cent increase seemed to be tlie case but in Hagerstown the increase to service station operators was six-tenths cents but the nrice to the con sumer only increased half-cent per gallon. The increase was reported to be general in the Eastern Seaboard area and is attributed in pare to increased delivery and production costs. No current increase was reported in the wholesale or retail price of motor oil, although motor oil has gone up twice since last November The total increase amounts to about seven cents a gallon, local dealers declare, and service stations, thus far, have absorbed the additiona charge.
