Long term contracts were made with producers, t hereby the latter accepted the mar ket price, whatever it might lie, and he oil is being taken daily at the wills. Only the producers that have not sold in advance are benefitting through receiving premiums. The supply of crude oil. rlttht now, is not is treat as the demand and this has caused a determined effort to he put forth by the purchasing companies to secure oil, even though a stiff prem ium is paid.
