Sheik Ahmed Zaki Yamani of Saudi Arabia the leading price dove and world's largest oil exporter said the Saudi price may go up $1 or $2 but the world oil glut probably will rule that out for the

geographical location should not exceed in any case $5 per barrel This price structure will be applicable as of July 1 1980 to be reviewed in the tripartite meeting to take place next autumn objective of this new price structure aims at achieving an equilibrium between supply and demand in order to avoid further stockpiling which is harmful to producers and consumers But the "compromise" agreement was mostly for public consumption because individual members may wait as long as they like before putting their prices in line with the new benchmark Under the accord middle-priced countries led by Iraq and including Kuwait and Venezuela are to raise current prices about $30 a barrel by $2 But prices at the lower and upper ends of the spectrum will remain unchanged at least for now PREDICT INCREASE Saudi Arabia for one said it will not raise prices at this time although conference sources said a Saudi increase will come in the next few months Iran which sells oil virtually identical to that of Saudi Arabia and Iraq said it will not decrease the cost of oil As a result OPEC prices will remain disunited as they have been since early 1979 During five sessions the conference bounced
