Florence Morning News (Newspaper) - March 10, 1974, Florence, South CarolinaGood morning it s sunday March to 1974 our 51st year no. 69 Florence. S. C. Daily 10s sunday 15 Congress Renews Hue and cry Over Oil prices if Washington a three Senate House subcommittees saturday recommended that the Federal government Roll Back Oil prices and get into the Petroleum business As Means of alleviating the Energy shortage. In a report the panels of the joint economic committee urged that the major Petroleum companies be required to sell their pipelines and recommended ending major tax Breaks available to the Oil Industry. However the subcommittees rejected the idea advanced by president Nixon Oil state senators and the Petroleum Industry that the Federal Power commission authority to regulate natural Gas prices should be repealed As an incentive to increase production. Favor continued regulation of wellhead natural Gas prices for the same reasons that we favor continued Oil Price controls that is. The Transfer of income from Consumers to producers in the absence of controls would be unacceptably the subcommittee said. The report entitled a reappraisal of . Energy was made by the sub com. Mittens on consumer economics inter National economics and on priorities and Economy in government and followed months of study of Oil prices and supplies and the Arab embargo. In several instances the recommendations parallel those in a Bill being drafted by the Senate Commerce committee. A provision in that draft and in the subcommittees recommendations would Roll Back the prices of Oil on grounds they Are far in excess of the Levels needed to stimulate production. A similar provision in the emergency Energy Bill led Nixon to veto that measure last week. The subcommittees said a Rollback to december 1973 Levels would Cut company revenues by billion a year without affecting production. The report noted that prices of Domestic crude Oil average 80 per cent higher than nine months ago. Perhaps the most controversial recommendation in the report is the Call for Congress to reduce the authority for the major companies to control most phases of the Petroleum Market from drilling to Selling. At a minimum the report said the largest companies should be required to sell their pipelines.
