Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 19, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta 14 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Saturday, December 19, 1970 4 Tnt LClnDKIUOC Gasoline price increase of no help to oil firms the last 20 years. In that period, Even after last week's one- cent increase in gasoline prices, oil companies still get less at the refinery than they did 20 y ears ago. a study by The Herald reveals. Adding the federal sales tax, which is a part of the whole- 1.5 cents above the average for the federal sales tax increased from 1.1 to '2.1 cents per gallon, provin- cial tax from nine to 15 cents per gallon and the average dealer mark-up at Lethbridge from about six cents to per- haps 10. To what extent the oil com- panies control the dealer price is subject to debate. While there is a general pattern to _ pump prices, standardization is not exact. Gasoline sales generally pay for the standard of service pro- vided. Those stations which pro- vide 24-hour service or which provide extensive motor and other servicing, tend to charge a higher price than those which offer little more than a pump and a rag and these only for the prime hours. The price of crude oil at a pravily) to per barrel since 1950. It is governed by the world oil market. The fact that gasoline prices at the refinery have not increased is t ,vnnic- due to'improved refining meth- whidi is a part ol me wnoic w of sale price, the new price is only ot -mltlc oil. Including the federal tax (which increased a cent a gal- lon as noted above) the whole- sale price of gasoline at the Calgary refinery was 21.9 cents 20 years ago, averaged 21.2 cents over the 20-year period, and stood at 21.7 cents before last week's one-cent increase. (When the crude oil pipeline Calgary refinery has increased I was built to carry Alberta oil hob 'about 12.12 (for 39- to Ontario the to come down to penetrate that market. But for that pipeline and market, oil company offi- cials contend, the wholesale gasoline price in Alberta would be several cents higher today.) What happens after the gaso- line leaves the Calgary refin- ery? Nearly all that is sold in Lelhbridge comes in by tank truck, and the cost is two cents per gallon. In the case of the major com- panies, another 1.5 cents is add- ed to look after regional over- head, and some of them have a half cent "competition allow- ance" that brings the price to Hie dealers back down to 25.7 cenlf. (Two companies quote that price and a lliird 26 cents.) Add the 15-ccnt provincial tax, and the price to the service sta- tions comes to 40.7 cents. With one brand, the current pump price in Lethbridge va- ries between 49.9 and 51.9 cents, depending mainly on the extent of service provided. However, the gasoline outlets at major shopping centres are content with a much lower mark-up. Then there are stations which list a high pump price but knock several cents All the above prices are for 2 gasoline. A five-cent pre- mium for No. 1 applies fairly uniformly from the refinery to the motorist's gas tank. Some companies will soon be providing a third brand, simi- lar to No. 2 but with less lead. Its price will be the same as No. 2. It is being made to fit the new motors, which are de- signed to cut the pollution fac- r. An additional factor discover- ed in The Herald's survey is the delivery by tank truck to the station. It is much more convenient if a station can take a whole truckload, as many in Lethbridge rip. But some cities, such as Medicine Hat and New tor. Crackdown soon on drug cases The crown and the courts in Lelhbridge are going to make an attempt to curb the number of possession of drag charges coming before them. Magistrate Lloyd Hudson said, in passing a sentence in court Friday on a charge of possession of drags, this will he TO SYMBOLIZE FOND MEMORY Choose wisely the monu- ment to honor your loved ones.

The alternative, Magistrate Hudson said, will be a fine plus a probation period or a jail term. Each case will be judged according to the circumstances involved. Crown prosecutor, Charles Virtue, said possession of drugs in Lethbridge is far too routine in court. The crown, he said, is going to stop prosecuting by way of summary convict i o n and proceed by way of indict- ment which, upon convict i o n, carries a heavier penalty. Donald Alfred Fazio, 21, of Lethb ridge and Calgary re- ceived a two-year suspended sentence when he phaded guilty in magistrate's court in L e t bridge Friday to possession of LSD, marijuana and cannibus esin. He was arrested Dec. 1 along with two other Lethbridge men. The other two also received two-year suspended sentences. lASTEDO iFURNITURE Phone 327-7711 522 5th STREET 5. 5 (OFF ALL FURNITURE II ON THE FLOOR LAMPS TABLES CHESTERFIELDS ODD CHAIRS ED BARTEL CONSTRUCTION LTD. York, have bylaws restricting the sizu of gasoline trucks that may use public streets. That makes for much more frequent deliveries. In New York, for in- stance, the trucks have to call at all the stations nearly every right. Some producers argue that the world oil market justifies a higher Canadian crude o i 1 price. Indeed, higher well-head prices were posted just (his week, enough to justify roughly another cent on gasoline pump prices. Still higher crude prices are anticipated by some parts of the industry. The oil industry has some- times been accused of collusion between companies hi price- fixing. The pricing mechanism takes account o! the sensitivity of the industry to any such sug- gestions. One of the major dis- tributors wiU announce an in- crease, and that becomes a new ceiling for the competing com- panies. They can then conveniently rsise their own prices the same amount. Or when one company decreases its prices, the others h a v e to fall in line to stay competitive. When this follow- the-leacter system breaks down, temporary price wars develop and then eventually price con- sistency is re-established.

Guidance counsellors play an important role in the adjust- ment of Indian students attend- ing schools in the Lethb ridge system. Bev Kandell, guidance co-or- dinator for the Blood Peigan Indian district said because of the conflict of values experi- enced by most native students, many need intensive counsel- ling. Reasons for this counselling include sudden change of envir- onment, pr e v i o u s home life, change in school atmosphere, the whole concept of peer groups, the size of the new school and the variety of sub- ject choice available to the stu- dent. Mr. Randell said part of the work of the guidance counsellor is to refer students to guidance clinics in the city, deal with parents, both on and off the re- serve, attend school staff meet- ings to give lectures and to give lectures to private groups in the community. "We try to prepare the In- dian student to attend school in the city and give him proper guidance on post education said Mr. Randell. "We work closely with proba- tion officers, court officials, drug problems, the Lethbridge Friendship Centre and the whole community to promote the In- dian students." He said the department feels the Indian student coming from the reserve to the city knows more about the white society than the white society knows about the Indian. "This is the reason for the public relations regarding In- dian students to equalize and expand the level of understand- ing on both sides." He said there is a great deal of understanding between the students and the home parents, both of whom are counselled by the guidance counsellor. Taber receives sewerage loan A federal loan for the construction of sewage works in Taber has been an- nounced. Made under the National Housing Act, lie loan wil go toward building a collector sewer, sewage stabilization and holding pond. dian district said in the past two years, two students have grad- uated to opportunity classes in regular schools in the city sys tern. "In time, these students wil be on par with regular schoo classmates due to the intensive individual attention they re- he said. "Language i n s t r u c tion is stressed for these students, with free access to speech the- rapists and reading special- ists." Opportunity classes are sep- arate classes within a regular school in the city system which follows in general terms :he standard curriculum, but in a less detailed basis. There is not such a strict pass-fail attitude within the op- portunity class structure. The students in opportunity classes are never emotionally handicapped, not necessarily retarded but are generally less capable. The department of Indian af- fairs pays for education ex- penses in the same manner as regular school students. This in- cludes tuition, lodging, supplies, medical attention and personal allowance.
