Saturday, April 27, 1974 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD 7 Americans relax efforts to save energy NEW YORK (AP) Americans are relaxing their efforts to save energy now that the visible signs of the Arab oil embargo against the United States have vanished. A country-wide survey by The Associated Press found evidence of increased use of energy throughout the U.S. since the middle of March: more auto auto traffic and higher speeds, rising toll-road receipts, declining use of mass transit and greater use of electricity. Asked about the survey's re- sults, William Simon, former federal energy chief, said in New York the U.S. is headed for further energy trouble if the survey is accurate. The U.S. was forced to reduce its energy consumption by the embargo imposed last October by Middle East oil-producing countries. But the oil embargo ended March 18, apparently starting Americans back on the road to their former levels of energy use. "The energy office has been monitoring traffic to see what people would do once the lines at gasoline stations dis- appeared. People .are going back to their old driving said John Sawhill. who replaced Simon as administrator of the Federal Energy Office. The increase in auto use was reflected on several toll high- ways. West Virginia turnpike traffic for the first eight days of April was reported down about one per cent from a year ago. It had been down 4.1 per cent in the first three months of 1974. Receipts for Connecticut toll roads on Sunday, Feb. 3, were per cent below a year ago. But receipts for Sunday, April 14, were down only three per cent from the year before. And police in several states said the number of speeding citations issued is increasing. "Since they no longer have to wait in line for gas, they feel they should no longer have to go said Chief Will Bachofner of the Washington State Patrol. Use of mass transit increased during the height of the energy shortage, but the survey shows the number of. passengers carried now is declining. The Mass Transit Authority of Baltimore, Md., said bus usage increased by about 25 per cent in mid-February but now is only seven or eight per cent above 1973 levels. Electric utilities across the U.S. also said conservation ef- forts appear to be declining, but added residents still are not using the amount of electricity they would increase of about six per cent a year. Energy surveys conducted weekly by the National Opinion Research Centre in Chicago indicate that the idea of car pools never caught on in most areas of the country.

U.S. trade balance hits skids WASHINGTON (AP) The sharply higher cost of oil im- ports pushed the United States trade balance into deficit in March for the first time in nine months, the commerce department reported Friday. The department said imports during March exceeded exports by million. This compared with a surplus of million in February. The country's trade still is in surplus for the year by million. The March deficit was attributed almost entirely to a 17-percent increase in the cost of imports of foreign oil. This reflects the sharply higher price Lag imposed by the oil- producing countries. Nixon administration econo- mists have predicted that the higher cost of foreign oil will offset the country's otherwise encouraging trading position and bring about a trade deficit this year. Both exports and imports ln- creased in March with imports rising 6.1 per cent to slightly less than billion while exports rose nearly one per cent to almost billion. The value of oil and petro- leum product imports during March totalled almost bil- lion, up from just over billion in February and million in the same month a year earlier. The volume of petroleum imports declined slightly in March, however, to 161 million from 164 million barrels in February. A year earlier, the U.S. imported 200 million barrels of petroleum products. The commerce department said that for the first three months of 1974, total exports were up 27 per cent over last year to an annual rate of billion. Imports were up 26 per cent to an annual rale of billion. The U.S. had a trade surplus last year of million, its first trade surplus in three years.
