HAT are the reasons for the advance
in gasoline prices?" was asked by the
President of a large daily newspaper.
Continuing, the gentleman said: "I can con*
ceive how the cost of a manufactured article
might increase as much as 50 to 100 percent
because of the increased cost of raw materials,
labor, etc. but it lias always seemed to me
that the price of a product taken from the
ground at a comparatively low cost should
not be affected to any marked degree."
This constitutes a fair question, and we are
glad of an opportunity to answer it frankly.
Gar-oiine is refined from crude petroleum by a lengthy
and expensive process, and is. in the truest sense, a man
ufactured article. Time, labor, and heavy investments
enter into the manufacture of gasoline from the cruce
and each cf these necessarily affect the price.
The cost (f crude is a dominant factor in fixing the
price of gosciise.
The extraordinary demand for petroleum products, plus
the abnormal increases in the cost of labor, machinery,
and money necessary lor drilling and equipping oil wells,
have combined tr force upwards the price cf crude oil
f. o. b. Whitinp from $1.54 to $4.30 per barrel in four
years, neariy 180 percent.
For the same period the selling price of gasoline has
increased but 44 percent.
Since the Armistice was signed, the production of auto
mobiles, tractors, trucks, and other power using machin
ery, has created a demand for gasoline far in excess of
norma). Gasoline reserves have been reduced to an alarm
ing extent and the bidding for crude oil on the part of
refiners generally, has forced prices upward.
The Standard Oil Company (Indiana) having practically no
wells of its own is obliged to go into the open market and
compete with other refiners for the crude oil it requires.
Because of its acknowledged superior efficiency in manu
facturing, the Standard Oil Company (Indiana) despite
these conditions has been able to exert a marked deterrent
pressure upon the upward sweep of the gasoline market.
