The) had said that, if the shah and King Faisal of Saudi Arabia together pushed for reductions other OPEC countries might go along. Stands Firm Informed sources in Tehran said prior to the news confer- ence that they expected prices to stay as they are, or possibly be increased 30 to 140 cents a barrel in December.

"Once you do he said producing and consum- ing nations "will liave (he same destiny." He said that, even if the post- ed price is reduced to a bar rel, he does not expect it to lower the cost to the American consumer unless the profits of oil companies are held to a fixed level.

Why should they make 700 percent profit Is that he asked. See No Signs Before the shah's announce mcnt, the prospects of lower oi prices appeared dim. U.

In exchange, Egypt would sigi no-war pact and the Arab vould go on record at the sum mit for lower oil prices, whic hey didn't do. Rabbo accused the U.

Now regular gasoline costs 62 ents a gallon here, and oilmen ave been presented with a new 5.98-bilIion price tag for the 98-mile steel tube which won't egin carrying oil south for at ast two-and-a-half years. A vice-president of Alyeska ipeline Service Co., a consor- um for eight oil firms which is uilding the trans-Alaska pipe- ne, blamed worldwide inflation nd escalating salaries for the vised cost. The company said Friday the ew total includes ?5.5G billion r the project and more than 20 million for "certain contin- ncies" which were not speci- ed. None of that includes the cost building the huge tankers lich will receive the 1.2 mil- n barrels of oil to be pumped ily from the North Slope to a arine terminal at Valdez. However, Alyeska's George ilson said the projection does elude a cushion for graduated inflation.
