Rep. James T. Hastings, R- N.Y., said "VVeunesuay he had been told by "people at the White House" that the President would not accept an amendment approved by the House- Commerce Committee. That amendment would roll hack domestic: crude oil to the prices thiil existed in Novern- jber 197.'}. at Uhe beginning of the i A r a b oil crnnarpo. This would 'lower the cost o' most oil from the current S5.2S a barrel to S4.2S, and would lower the retail cost of gasoline and other petroleum products 1 .. Nixon vetoed previous ewer gency energy legislation because of h similar price rollback provision. Profits of major oil corn panics, meanwhije, continue to show sharp increases for the first three months of 1974. Continental Oil (Conoco) reported Wednesday that net income after taxes for the first quarter rose ISO per cen* to $109.2 mil- lion, or $2.1C a share, compared to f.47,5 million in the same pe- ri od ot 1973. Getty Oil reported a 122 per cent increase in its First quarter profits, with after-tax earn- ngs reaching £73.6 million. They were $33.1 million a year ago. And Murphy Oil Corp. ot El Dorado, Art., a smaller firm, disclosed quarterly profits of $27.37 million, up 257 per cent from the voar-earlicr level of $7.fi7 million. Earlier this week, Exxon, Texaco, Gulf, Standard of Indiana (Amoco) and Occidental reported first quarter profits up trorn 75 per cent to 718 per cent over 1973 levels. "The exceptionally favorable results in the first quarter of this year are not indicative of the earnings gains anticipated for the full year of 1974,'' said C o n o c o c h - a i r r n a n John McClcan. S. B. Pinyan, Atlanta representative of the Phillips Petroleum Co.. said Wednesday it is a "phony charge" to say oi" companies are making windfa! profits. Large oil companies are reporting dramatic profit increases because current can ings are Ve i n g compared to "" when, he wsld. Industry profits ware the lowest in a decade. There were these other dtvclipmcnts: ~A nationwide Associated Press survey shows that Americans are abandoning the 'conservation habits they voluntarily adopted dadng last win- tor's energy crisis. The survey showed automobile traffic approaching pre'prnbargo levels. And it showed that mass transit jse is up, toll road receipts are climbing and electricity conservation rates are declining. --A check of data from the American Petroleum Institute and several major oil companies showed that a Mobil Oil Corp.*s advertisement claiming that only one in CO wells drilled pays off is less than fully accurate. API figures show that of all new wells drilled worldwide last year, 61.2 pet cent struck oil or natural gai, 36 times better than the Mobil ad says. A Mobil spokesman said the one- in-SO figure applies "only for wildcat drilling i.i the United States in bran:! new fields where there are no proven oil or gas reserves."
