Prior to the start of the annual check-up, hydrocarbons emitted from taxis in 1973 totalled 2,400 tons. This was reduced to 1,600 tons to 1974 after the program began. Carbon monoxide emis- sions went from 37,000 tons in 1973 down to 21,000 tons the following year. "Since 40 p« cent of New York City vehicle air pollution comes from cabs, there was a very obvious need for such a program to control carbon monoxide and other harmful emissions," said R. L. Gib- ney, President of Olson Laboratories .which operated inspection facilities. The taxis undergo a full range of safety and exhaust emission tests. They are also inspected for comfort-related Items. "The results have indicated that cabs which pass the test not only emit less hydrocarbons and carbon monoxide pollutants," Gibney stated, "but also show up to 10 per cent Increase In fuel savings. When you consider that most taxis are driven 70,000 miles or more per year, this can be a significant cost savings for the opera tor and makes a substantial amount of gasoline available for other motorists." Self service gas growing After a slowdown due to the oil embargo, self service pumps are now Increasing. Today about 12% of all gas is self service and estimates are for 40% by 1980. The lure for the consumer is lower prices -- as much as 5 cents a gallon on some brands. Self service also points to fewer minor repairs and other service work performed at gas stations. Station attendants with mechanical know-how are moving into the independent repair market. Meanwhile the number of service stations has shown a dramatic increase in the last two years, principally gas only stations.

Air conditioners are now used in hen houses to boost egg production, barns, where hogs fatten faster and cows give more milk, and sugar refineries, to keep granules from lumping together.
