Problems Plague Manchester Event Will Lobby to Ban Major Oil Firms from Iowa DES MOINES (DPI) The executive secretary of the Iowa Gas Dealers Assn. (IGDA) announced Tuesday his organization will lobby the 1975 state legislature for a law banning major oil companies and refineries from owning and operating gas stations in Iowa. William Zcnter said the bill sought by the association would not prevent ii.dependent dealers from leasing gas sta- tions. He said the IGDA believes thai banning ownership by the major companies would elimi- nate unfair competition from the refineries and chain sta- tions owned by large oil producers. said the proposed measure "would make for more equitable the conditions of the gas indus- try." Zonter said it is unfair that the stations owned by large gas companies can operate on smaller profit margins and sell their gas for lower prices than the independent dealer faced with higher overhead costs. Center, who noted that Florida and Maryland have enacted similar legislation, said it could stabilize gas prices and bring back good service. ter's first German festival days held Saturday was plagued with problems which sponsoring organizations fig- ure cut over from the expected profits.
