independent oil and gasoline dealers from over the state testi fied The other members of the ommittee are Representatives Eu jne Damon of Jackson county Roy rlamlin of Marion county E W Ctouey of Pettis county and Bay less James of Buchanan county The practice on the part of sev eral large companies seems to be ihat of selecting a specific and lim ited territory within the state and dropping retail prices on gasoline n that area two or three cents on he gallon the report says Hurls Independents Unless the independent dealers meet the lowered prices they lose much of their trade the report continues If they do meeUthe unfair esthey then are forced to sell their product at a loss Such practices the report says are obviously in violation of our state laws against pools trusts con spiraies
