Standard Oil Company Re
While there has been no material
relief from any of the conditions
which brought about the rise in the
price of petroleum products, the
Standard Oil Company, N. J., believ
es that the process of readjustment
now under way in the business world
must eventually contribute to lower
costs of producing and refining' oil.
To date there has been no lowering
of labor costs nor crude oil prices,
nor recession in the demand for gas
oline. Reductions which have al
ready taken place in many of the
principal items entering into the cost
of living have for the most part not
reached the ultimate consumer, but
it is inevitable that before long
lower prices will be brought about by
new quotations now prevailing in
primary markets. The Standard Oil
Company (N. J.) believes that this
movement towards a restoration of
what are popularly considered nor
mal prices should be aided by the oil
