Expenditures for 1947 and 1948 alone come to one billion dollars. That's a thousand million dollars! \ It is reported that the oil industry as a whole will epend 13 billion dollars over the next few years to do this job. Why? What's going on? Last year, this country used more oil than the whole world did in 1939—before World War II. You're getting 61% more oil products now than pre-war. You're getting 12% more than even the biggest wax-time output. 3 million more cars on the road than pre-war—buses and trucks up 25 and 30%! And the average car is using 50 more gallons of gasoline a year than pre-war] 1,500,000 more homes art oil-htattd than in 19391 Farmers have doubled their use of time-saving, work-saving tractors, trucks, and other equipment since pre-war! * And this is all to the good. It spells progress. It's part of America's belter and better living standards. It's Part of the amusing fact that oil has supplied 62% of this country's whole vast increase in use of fuel over the past 20 years—for industry, agriculture, homes, and transportation. But it also means close figuring between present needs and present capacity. Even today's record output doesn't give the extra reserve of available supply we've always had in the American oil business. This will be true until the full effect of the new, expanded facilities is felt. But the big new supply for your new need is on its way right now. Wells being drilled. Refineries, pipelines, storage tanks built. Billions of dollars working as fast and as hard as skill and resourcefulness and experience can make them work. The better $>ou, live the more oil you need. And the oil for your needs is on the way I STANDARD OIL COMPANY (NEW JERSEY)
