The whole Question of ttovM penetration Into Austrian oil Industry has been the subject oC bitter East-West dispute ever sine* the end of the war.

Th» United States and Britain claim that controlling interests ln,.the refinery are held by American and British oil companies — Socony-Vacuum (Standard Oil) end the British Anglo- Saxon Petroleum Co.
