Nixon said rumors that gasoline prices will rise to $1 a gallon are just as ridiculous, as! he put it, as the predictions that bread prices may reach $1 a loaf. Oil Companies The American people cannot afford to pay such prices, he said, and he assured his hearers that they will not have to pay them. He pledged that he will do everything in his power to see that the major oil companies do not make unconscionable profits as a result of the fuel shortage. When congress reconvenes on Monday, he said, he will urge it to act immediately on a law to avoid windfall profits. Nixon said he will propose also legislation to require the oil companies to provide a full and constant inventory of costs, reserves and the like.
