U S BILLION ' He said such taxation would raise about $1,600,000,000 a year initially, but the figure would diminish as the sale of lead-free gasolines climbed.

' Manufacturers and importers of lead for fuel purposes would be assessed a tax of $4.25 on every pound of lead. T This would Ultimately raise' the price of such gas to motorists by about 2.3 cents a gallon and presumably spur refiners to produce lead-free gas.
