In CnHfornffl fields whom competition will not permit additional curtailment, a certain percentage of Uir oil produced can bo stored by Mir producer In tankage ron tod »t it roanon«blp rate from larger companies. Thn pl/in, ho, points out In 11 letter, lias found favor In Texns. "It Is not unlikely that some such proposal will so crystallze that definite action may be taken during th« coming month/' reads the umpire's letter. "Super-curtailment, the expense of storlnfl oil and perhaps worse eventualities can be avoided by consistently keeping California oil pro* duction within, rather than in excess of, the demand." Ptemberton's letter further points out that crude oil and grafioHno prloe demoralization in the mid-continent, unsatisfactory market conditions in the Pacific northwest, lower gasoline consumption due to bad weather, continued overproduction In Los Angeles basin and unbalanced Increases In storage oil have all combined to accentuate the gravity of the present oil situation in the state. 10,000 GALLONS OF GASOLINE—PLUS LIGHTNING ^^jrrnflj/ vMWcM.X yssK&8& 1OX *.<v,:'•••••*•: '.>.' v* 1 .
