Exxon Increases Heavy Oil Price HOUSTON (AP) Blaming a iax boost in Venezuela, Exxon Co. USA has added 40 cents per barrel lo all its domestic prices for heavy fuel oil. Development Fund Prospects Good: Aller Prospects for complete feder- al funding of the new communi- ty development act look good, according to Tom Aller, Cedar Rapids intergovernmental coor- dinator. Aller represented the mayor Wednesday in Kansas City at a briefing for elected officials and staff members from cities in modity futures trading. It now goes to the senate. The commission could seek court action lo block contracts for future deliveries of agricul- tural and other commodities i which could bring shortages onj IhcU.S. market. An 'Exxon spokesman said Nebraska, Missouri and Wednesday the Venezuelan gov- ernment levied a 3.5-pcrcent tax ncrease on Exxon suppliers Oct. 1. Rules of the U. S. Federal Energy Administration allowed increased costs of foreign sup- plies to be passed on .to con- umers. Exxon said heavy fuel oil is used by industries and big apartment complexes, but it is not ordinarily used by individ- uals. Bui the spokesman conceded that because it is an important source of industrial energy, the new price adds to the cost of certain products and eventually is paid by the consumer.

If the full amount is appropri- ated, Cedar Rapids will receive approximately in en- titlement funds, in addition lo any funds that may be received under other sections of the bill.
