BithKHVIM, Raleigh. Oct. 7. While there may He some bootlegging of gasoline in North Carolina, either through smug gling or dilution, there is not much ■>f it because of the difficulties sur *ounding the practice, according to l». J Sears, in charge of the collec tion of the State gasoline tax for the Depart merit of Revenue. "About the only way gasoline can b» smuggled into North Carolina and not he easily detected Is by tank "agon shipment across State lines. - * s-ar-r -aid. "However, the fact that ’h» gasoline tax is either the same *-r higher than in North Carolina in ■»!* but one border state, gives very '• Me incentive for across the border bootlegging. The State gasoline tax in Virginia i< five cents a gallon, and hence one r "nt a gallon less than in North Caro !’na. But a difference of only one cent » gallon is not enough to make boot -gging profitable. The tax In South Carolina and Georgia is the same as in this State while In Tennessee the t*x is one cent « gallon higher. So th“ie irt no incentive for the smug gling of gasoline from those state* bi*o North Carolina. The gasoline smugglers know, also, ’ha* all the State inspectors and the highway patrol are on the look out for and that the chancs are de cidedly against them. The result seem* to be that as far as North Carolina i- concerned the gasoline bootleggers have decided that it is not worth the chances hey would be taking."
