V of gasoline, a man who is unfamiliar
with petroleum production writes:
x , "The Lord, who put -the oil in the
earth, charges no more for it than he
eVer,did.. It comes for nothing out
of the ground-when you-dig a hole."
This-is true, if it comes out of the ground
without Jielp. The greatly increased cost
lies in digging the hole, casing Rearing for
, the oil when it comes out, and transporting
"-and handling it on its way to the refinery.
Petroleum Age in'its September issde says:
' "' "The cost of drilling',and equipping a well

,andJabor runs fromjHveThOTsanrJDolrara''-
for, a shallow sand pumper to-6eventy five
Thousand Dollars for the deep wells- A
, general average-covering the entire country
would run abouUTwenty Thousand Dollars
per well." ) ' ,
One itenvrrhicb. tjofutt oyerlooked is te cost of dnl--
Jing weja which fail , to produce oil. It is estimated
"" that frtpt 20 to 30 ercent-of all wells put down arc
, Yet. in jpite.otail iliscijuraserneats, which included
shortage of easinp- djfliailties of transportation, and
the increasinK expense bf labor, en JaJy 31st, 17X1,

j ' ewt of the' Rock? Mountains, wth completions" aver-
ajing about three thousand KeUs A month. Prtibahly
thirty-six thousand wells will be completed during1 1920.
The total erpenso iodudinn investment in dnWinz
tools, lease equlprnentJsad later, is roughly estimated
at one billion dollars.
, Deducting two hundrfd fifty million dollars (25 per
cent) for salvage on equipment susceptible cf. further
use, the net investment in,new production for the
year will be seven hundred fifty million dollars.
It Is apparent that 03 dies cot come "for nothing out

Oil Is usually discovered in. spots remote frcm rail
