Deputy Premier Abdul Salam alloud of Libya said during the eekend that price increases emanded by the six Gulf stales ere below Libya's minimum equirements. Libya and Al- eria supply Western Europe ith almost one third of its oil, and company officials said Sun- ay that Libyan oil at least light be cut off if quick agree- lent is not reached. The Gulf agreement is binding n Saudi Arabia, Iraq, Iran, Ku- wait, Abu Dhabi and Qatar, who upply almost half of Western Europe's needs and 92 per cent f Japan's. Under the Gulf agreement, the posted price of light crude rom the Gulf will go immedi- ately to a barrel, up 33 cents. Heavy crude will cost 0.5 cents more at a bar- The agreement will produce in extra million for the 'ersian Gulf countries this year and million during the ive years the pact runs.

Western oilmen said th agreement will push up costs o transportation and heavy indus try in Western Europe an Japan becauss the higher prices will be pased on to consumers This, they reasoned, will mak U.S. industrial exports mor competitive in world markets. Noting that U.S. deposit won't last forever, a senior oil company official said: "The current price trend ma encourage the United States t start exploiting its shale oil de- posits which until now has no been regarded u an economic prospect." In Calgary, ollrflim Carl Nickle said the >ettlement "will tend to trigger comparable in- creases In all oil prices around the globe." The higher rates established a basis for new prices that will be decided by Venezuala later this month. Venezuala provides about three million barrels of oil a ay to North America, meeting 11 demands In Quebec and the ilaritimes along with hah" emand of the eastern U.S. seaboard. The change in rates would first be reflected by higher pe- roleum costs In areas using oreign oil, but how soon this occurs would be decided by the oil companies and competition Mr. Nickle. publisher of the Daily Oil Bulletin and a former >rogressive conservative mem >er of parliament, said the 'ehran agreement is "going t< scare the pants off politician and I hope the public" in west ern countries. "It will make them realiz there is no security of supplj rom overseas. "OPEC countries are In th driver's seat and they will con tinue to use their power to gai as much revenue from oil a they can get away with." They can use the threat o cutting off. supplies to gain fur ther price increases, he said and it is in the economic inter est of the west to ensure futur cutoffs will not cripple indus try. jound to have an Impact DO Ca- nadian prices. Canada's position in petroleum picture a unusual in that it is both an im- orter and an g from Venezuela for east- oast use, and exporting to the nited States from the western elds. A longer-range effect of the ehran agreement could be as in impetus to exploration for ddional reserves in Canada's relic and offshore areas. Can- da now accounts for 2.6 per of the total world petro- eum production and has about wo per cent of Ciscovered re- UJ. companies would increase ra enues and stimulate the explo ation needed to prevent depenc ency on such oil. In Canada, the eventual effec of the higher prices for crud could mean an increase of tu or three cents a gallon in the r tail price of gasoline. Other pe- troleum product prices als could increase.
