H8S Gas Price Still Dropping LOS ANGELES (AP) Gasoline prices continued a three-month slide toward $1 a gallon last week, and many service stations nationwide were already selling regular leaded gasoline for less than a dollar, an industry analyst said. Unleaded gasolines, however, generally remained above the dol-lar-a-gallon threshold, said Dan Lundberg. publisher of the oil-oriented Lundberg Letter. His bi-weekly 50-state survey of 17,500 service stations found thousands of stations already selling regular leaded gasoline for less than a dollar a gallon. The Jan. 25 survey found the average price for all four grades of gasoline, including taxes, was $1,139 a decline of 5.3 cents per gallon since October. The survey in cludes prices at full-service and self-service pumps. "This means that the price has been falling over a penny and a half a month," Lundberg said Saturday. He added that the decline appears to be accelerating, because the average price dropped 1.44 cents per gallon over the survey two weeks ago. Lundberg said his survey also indicates that dealers have been sacrificing their margin of profit to stay competitive. The wholesale price has fallen by 106 cents per gallon since Jan. 11. he said. The drop in retail prices is somewhat greater than experts expected since the worldwide price Of crude oil dropped $2 from $29 a barrel, Lundberg said. George L.

Winter Warmer Than Usual MADISON CAP) Although temperatures dipped well below in some areas Of Wisconsin earlier this month, a meteorologist says this is actually a warm winter. Despite the frigid Jan. 19-20 weekend that sent people scurrying for jumper cables for their car batteries, this winter has been 10 percent warmer than last, Ted Stimach From Page 1 of the National Weather Service said. "The cold spells this year have been shorter," he said. "Though we were probably colder this winter for a few days, we were colder for a longer period last year. The winter of 1983-84 was our third coldest On record." In fact, he said, "temperatures have been slightly above normal" this year. But utilities such as Madison Gas and Electric will still benefit from the most recent cold snap. Steve Krause said more of his company's heating gas was used during the Jan. 19-20 weekend than any other Saturday-Sunday period in history. And there has already been more snow in some areas of the state than during all of last winter. Four inches Thursday and Friday at Milwaukee brought the total there to 35.1 inches, two more than during all of last winter, but still nearly a foot less than the full-season average there. From Page 1 Taxes Among those who did use that tax break, 59 percent, said it was fair, while 41 percent said it was unfair. One third of those surveyed thought the proposal would leave them paying more taxes, while only 11 percent said they figured they would pay less. Only 28 percent said they were angry about the amount of taxes they paid last year, and 70 percent said they were satisfied or had no particular feeling about their tax bills. The Treasury proposal calls for replacing the current 15 tax brackets for single people, ranging from 11 percent to 50 percent, with three brackets. The lowest-income rate would be 15 percent, the middle-income 25 percent and the highest income levels 35 percent. Sixty percent of those polled said tax reform should take precedence over reducing the federal deficit. The Los Angeles Times poll, conducted Jan. 20 through Thursday, had a margin of error of 3 percent. The Washington Post poll had margins of error for various income groups ranging from 7 percent to 9 percent. George C. Rank George Rank. 70, formerly of 615 N.

From Page 1 Farmers "There are banks today in the state that are doing all they can to get rid of farmer customers," said Huston. "But there are others who are too lenient and face problems because of it. "But most are in the middle and they're trying to help the farmer through difficult financial times." According to the Iowa Department of Agriculture, the state's 115,000 farms are carrying about $17.4 billion in debt, and one farm in three is sliding toward insolvency. "That one-third of the farms controls 75 percent of the entire debt," said Dan Levitas, a research consultant with the Iowa Farm Unity Coalition. "That's $10 billion of the $17.4 billion debt. That's why the banks are frightened." Levitas said bankers are causing panic by demanding overdue loans instead of working with farmers. Most farmers, who have seen land values plummet an average of 20 percent the past year, the largest drop since the Depression, agree that high interest rates and low commodity prices are at the root of their problem. But they say they don't know what the solutions are. Harl has been to Washington with Gov. Terry Branstad twice to push his plan for a four-year, $10 billion agricultural credit corporation program that would pay part of the interest on farm debts. Branstad has said he will decide next month whether to declare a state of economic emergency, which would impose a moratorium on farm foreclosures. Meanwhile, Branstad, Harl and Iowa's congressional delegation met with administration officials last week and complained that President Reagan hasn't kept a campaign promise to provide $650 million in credit relief for farmers. "I'm not down and out but it's becoming difficult to make ends meet," said Norman Albaugh, who farms 1,200 acres in central Iowa and has already bought 500 bags of soybeans and 150 bags of corn for seed. "I held my own last year," he said. "This year we're just going to hope." OPEC the Venezuelan delegation said their country doubted the wisdom of cutting prices. As prices have fallen irregularly for more than three years with decreased demand for oil, non-OPEC countries such as Egypt and Britain have stepped up production. OPEC's share of the oil being sold in the non-Communist world has plunged to about 22 percent of the total volume from its 1979 level, when it cornered about two-thirds of that market. The loss of income has severely hurt some OPEC members, notably Nigeria, Venezuela and Indonesia. The poorer OPEC members have felt compelled to break the cartel's rules in order to sell enough oil to pay their bills. Nigeria broke ranks last October and cut its prices by $2 a barrel in reaction to price cuts by rival Britain. The pressure on OPEC to cut its prices again increased in recent weeks as Norway decided to sell its oil at the open market price, which for January deliveries was just above $27 a barrel. Britain has been selling much of its crude at similar prices. Last week, Canada's National Energy Board said it had proposed cutting the price of the oil its exports to the United States by as much as $1.89 a barrel, effective Feb. 1. The move is subject to approval by the Canadian Cabinet. Egypt, Mexico and Malaysia, all non-OPEC petroleum producers, sent observer delegations headed by their oil ministers.
