Government Report Shows What
United States Is Doing to
Washington, Nov. 13.According to
a report issued by the geological sur
vey, the total output of crude petro
leum in the United States in 1904 was
117,036,421 barrels. The total value of
all the petroleum marketed in the
United States in 1904 was $101,170,666.
The gain over the production of 1903
was 16,602,084 barrels in quantity and
$6,476,416 in value.
For the first time in the history of
the petroleum industry the quantity
of oil produced west of the Mississippi
was greater than that produced east
of that river. New pools were discov
5 ered in 1904 in Texas, California, Kan
sas, Indian territory and Oklahoma,
S and many extensions were made to the
5 old fields. A immense section begin
S ning in southeastern Kansas and ex-
a! tending southwestward into northern
Indian territory and Oklahoma, now
over one hundred and eighty miles
'length and fifty miles in width, was
proved to be locally productive of'pe
troleum and natural gas. ,._.,. I
The report says that all indications
point to an increase in the production
of petroleum in the United States for
jjj a series of years.
The increased demand for petroleum
in this country is attributed to the use
of gasoline in automobiles.
