The Toronto Stock Exchange's western oil index finished the week up 15.39 points to 172.35, the largest five-day club since July 4, 1969. Analysts said upward pres- sure has been mounting on oil and gas issues for the past sev- eral weeks. They say American investors are buying up Canadian oil ,ocks in anticipation of fuel lortages in the United Slates vhlch will lead to increased im- orts of Canadian fuel.

The National En- jgy Board gave the company :he go-ahead Friday on a pro- ect which would result in sales f 55.30 million barrels of Alber- a-produced propane during the next 23 years.

However, the current boom las not reached the proportions of the huge advances early lasl 'ear when the western oil index >oiled over the 300 mark.

Several companies staked oul ,arge exploratory areas and oL itocks as a group jumped up Other areas of investment ere generally higher this eek.
