Kttc Well, in 1939, the last year before the war, gasoline cost less in the United States than in arty other nation in the world. The average price throughout this country was IS^c per gallon-including taxes. The average price throughout the rest of the world was 33.7c per gallon. 2 Of course, we had plenty of crude oil within out boundaries. But then, so did many other nations. We had the scientists, the equipment and the skilled labor to convert that crude oil into gasoline efficiently. But we weren't alone in that respect either. What did we have then that kept our prices almost twice as low as the rest of the world's? The answer can be given in one word-competition. No nation had as little governmental control of the oil industry. No nation had as many companies competing for the business. •V In most countries, either prices are regulated by the government, or the industry is dominated by two or three big companies. Here, prices are allowed to find their own levels and the biggest single company has less than 13% of the country's business. * Source: Petroleum Factt & Figures, 1939; Authority; U. S. Bureau of Mines I92O ll 1930 In fact, there are 8,267 separate oil companies in this nation competing for your patronage. AS a result, the cost of "regular" gasoline to you (exclusive of taxes) dropped from 29.7c per gallon in 1920 to 13Kc in 1939, And the quality climbed from 52 octane to 78. O That's why we predict that gasoline prices after the war will be lowest nght here in America. For our competitive Free Enterprise System has demonstrated time and again that it can bring better products to more people at lower prices than any system yet devised by man.
