Notification was received Monday from all but the Southern States Freight bureau of six percent increases to cover increasing fuel costs. The increases come in lieu of other increases of as much as 1.7 percent which have been taken by the freight bureaus in recent months, Petska explained. Authorized Friday The action was authorized Friday by the interstate commerce commission as part of the agreement between government and truckers, he said. Many independents drive for common carriers, he said, but the increase in rates goes to the fuel 'supplier, be that the trucker or the trucking' company. The southern states bureau may also have taken the increase, but notification may be delayed in the mail, he said. Effective Monday The increases, all dated Fri day, were effective Monday. As is normally the case, the increases will probably be reflected in increased costs ol goods to the consumer, he said. Laist week, many shippers were shipping by rail rather than truck, Petska reported. Several companies have reportedly returned their trucks to ;he road, he said, but added the effect of reports that drivers in some areas.such as St. Louis, are not going to accept the set-dement is currently The Weather High temperatures Sunday, low temp eratures overnight and inches ol precipitation-Anchoraae 32J3.0B L.
