RAPESEED 1 Crude oil export tax increased export tax on crude-oil shipments to the United States will be increased 30 cents to a barrel effective March 1, Energy Minister Donald Macdonald said Wednesday. The increase, based on recommendations from the National Energy Board, reflects changes in the international price of oil, the minister said in a statement. Primary reason for the increase is boost in the price of Venezuelan Oil announced last month. Mr. Macdonald also said the tax on Lloyd-minster, Sask., heavy crude oils, lowered to last fall to make it more competitive in the U.S. (Chicago and Midwest) market, is being increased to a barrel. The tax oh other types of heavy fuel oil are being increased to from The export charge on eondensate, produced with natural gas, remains at a. barrel. It was left unchanged to encourage sales since eondensate is produced at a maximum rate during winter months when demand for natural gas is heavy. Other export charges left unchanged are motor gasoline at a barrel and middle distillates at a barrel, the minister said. The export charge was introduced more than a year ago to cover the difference between a frozen domestic oil price of a barrel and higher world prices. Exports to the U.S. total barrels of oil a employees and eliminated another jobs, reducing its salaried force from to The firm said its salaried employment is back to 1971 levels. American Motors, the last of the auto makers to slash work forces 'during the current slump, confirmed Wednesday that it quietly has been laying off employees and eliminating jobs since last November. But the No. 4 U.S. auto manufacturer declined to say how many of the salaried employes on its payroll a year ago have been cut. In addition to layoffs, the companies have trimmed their payrolls by not replacing employees who die, retire or are fired. The companies also have forced workers onto early retirement or required them to take early vacations in lieu of layoffs. Many of the laid-off employees receive company benefits on top of regular unemployment compensation, as do furloughed blue-collar, workers, but others receive no additional compensation.

An additional or four cents per common share was also reported in 1974 as non recurring gains from the sale of certain utility distribu-. tion facilities.
