Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 23, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Friday, August 23, 1974 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD 5 Montana ready to double price to keep Alberta gas tap open WASHINGTON (CP) The beleaguered executives of a Montana utility appealed here Thursday for the right to dou- ble the price they pay for Alberta natural gas, in the latest example of a continuing dilemrm that faces United States authorities. The request by Montana Power Co., at a public hearing conducted by Judge Jair Kaplan on behalf of the U.S. Federal Power Commission whose officials say there appears to be little choice but approval. "The commission has voic- ed considerable concern about these price increases for Lives saved WASHINGTON (Reuter) Lower speed limits have sav- ed lives in the United States since the beginning of the year, says a report issued yesterday by the National Highway Traffic Safety Ad- ministration. The government agency said preliminary es- timates show people were killed in traffic ac- cidents in the first half of 1974, down from in the same period of 1973. Canadian said a senior FPC lawyer, who asked not to be identified. But "since we're short of gas, we can't afford to have them turn off the tap. "When a guy's got a gun to your head, what can you The Montana Power appli- cation is one of several now before the FPC on behalf of U.S. importers seeking higher prices so they can continue to get deliveries of Canadian gas. One application, expected this fall, is understood to in- volve a price twice what Mon- tana Power requested. Canadian officials reject the idea that they are unfairly squeezing American con- sumers. They point to steadily rising prices and uncertain reserves in Canada, as well as to the higher prices the FPC has been authorizing for domestic U.S. gas and liquid gas from Algeria. There have been occasional suggestions of Canadian impa- tience with the FPC because of prolonged delays in issuing decisions. The impatience is shared by gas producers in the U.S., who also accuse the FPC of keep- ing prices unreasonably low, and even by some American government officials. One gas expert with the federal energy administration spoke private- ly Thursday of FPC "procrastination" and "political delays." The United States has been steadily eating into its gas re- serves since 1969 and pressure for higher prices to encourage exploration has grown apace. Parts of the country face reductions in gas supplies this winter and many companies no longer accept new customers. Canada supplies less than five per cent of the 23 trillion cubic feet of natural gas the United States consumes an- nually, but the Canadian gas is crucial for some border areas and Canada's National Energy Board has decreed that prices must rise. Montana Power, which gets 80 per cent of its supply from Alberta, had been paying 32 cents a thousand cubic feet un- til last May, when the price jumped to 62 cents.
