PAGE TEN Fuel Oil Famine May Affect Gas Plan to Increase Heating Fuel Output Advanced by Industry B.v Maureen Gothlfn (United Press Staff Correspondent) WASHINGTON, Jan. 23 (UP) — Petroleum Jndustry leaders wnrnrd today that a gasoline shortage next Summer may be the price the nation will have to pay for setting tnough heating oil this Winter. The National Petroleum Cmm- rtl production recommended last night that (lie industry sacrifice gasoline production to Increase fuel oil output /or 60 days, nnd dig into crude oil inventories that might have gone for gasoline stockpiles. The 85-member Industry Advisory Committee said today it recognized the recommendations "as creating future shortages of gasoline." But the council bclicvos "it- 's In the public Interest to exert stil! greater effort toward mcMnK home heating requirements rather than meeting gasoline requirements." In the interests of equitable distribution, the council nlso asked that household and Industrial consumers limit their fuel on hand to ft two-week supply and that even shortage areas take no more than a 30-day supply. To help emergency tneas ami relieve transportation bottlenecks, the council proposed a .seven-day wort: week for tank car loading crews for the next two months. Sees ilAtlonmff Meamvljfle, Secretary of Interior J. A. Krug, said he believes price »nd rationing controls will have to be slapped on oil next. Winter. It's too late to do It this year, lie told R Congressional committee. The Petroleum Council joined Krug In urging a 15 per cent reduction in fuel oil and gasoline consumption, and R temporary end to conversions from coal to oil heat. When oilier types of heat are available, the council said, homeowners should use them. Max Ball, head of the Interior Department's Oil and Gas Division, •aid the industry plan "win BO as far as human effort can now go" I to relieve the heating oil shortage. I The plan goes now to Attorney I General Tom Clark wlio must an-! prove tt In the light of anti-trust! regulations. If he assures anti-trust! clearance, Secretary Krug will give the Industry the go-ahead. Under the plan, oil companies could pool their supplies to save transportation and serve hardship cases. The council also called for fair distribution of available stocks to all customers, new or old. It| asked that industry committees be set up In all 26 shortage states, and regional committees on the Atlantic Coast, in the Midwest nnd on the Gulf Coast to facilitate such action.
