Russia hikes oil price to Hungary BUDAPEST (AP) Hungary announced Sunday that it now pays the equivalent of a ton for im- ported Soviet oil up from as a result of a price in- crease decreed by Moscow earlier this year. The Hungarian Communist Party newspaper Nepszabad- sag says the new oil price was among increases averaging 52 per cent for all energy products the Soviet Union sells to its trading partners, including natural gas, coal and electric power as well as oil products. The newspaper notes that the Soviet oil costs about a barrel, compared with the to a barrel western countries pay for oil from members of the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries. BOOSTS REVENUE The higher oil price is ex- pected to earn the Soviet Union billion in ad- ditional revenue this year. The increase is said to have been the first since 1971. International economists have previously noted that the Soviet Union's abundant natural resources should help it to ride out the present economic crisis with ease but that the east European countries will suffer worsen- ing trade deficits as a result of paying the higher prices for Soviet exports. Nepszabadsag says the oil price increase coincided with other hefty increases for raw materials, industrial goods and food supplies inside the Council for Mutual Economic Assistance the Communist trading alliance.

J. D. Little, who was elected president at the association's annual meeting here at the weekend, said most of the low grade copper mines in the province are will- ing to take a real cash flow loss for part of 1975 in hopes of improving conditions. The main problems facing the industry are low copper prices, Japanese cutbacks and the federal provincial resource revenue conflict, said Mr. Little, who is also ex- ecutive vice president of Placer Development Ltd. "We are just hanging on, hoping the provincial and federal governments will work out their he said. "Maybe there will be some sort of decision at the .first ministers' conference in April. Mr. Little said the industry is in the first year of a two to three year cycle for copper prices and the lead zinc market, although more stable than copper, is weakening. He said the industry has been willing to take the lean years hoping things would im- prove but super royalties im- posed by the provincial Offshore oil plan at stake WASHINGTON (AP) -The Ford administration's plans to open the Atlantic to oil ex- ploration are at stake before the Supreme Court on a suit to affirm federal ownership of offshore areas. Arguments were scheduled to be heard today by the court. The Ford administration has appealed for a quick ruling because the suit is blocking plans to lease 3.5 million acres of the Atlantic to oil companies. The interior department has agreed to delay its leasing program until the suit is settled. The agreement already has forced the depart- ment to withdraw one invita- tion for oil companies to recommend areas for leasing, a preliminary step in the program. The justice department'fil- ed the suit in 1969 after Maine announced plans to lease 3.3 million acres of Atlantic mineral rights more than three miles offshore. The suit named all of the Atlantic coast states as defendants, but Florida was severed because its case involves complicated boundary questions. Maine's plans conflicted with the 1953 Submerged Lands Act, which gives the states title only to the first three miles of adjoining seabed. The Atlantic coast states claim dominion over 100 miles because of pre revolutionary grants from the English and Dutch. The federal law empowers the interior department to lease mineral rights beyond the three mile limit. Since 1954 the department has leas- ed about 11 million acres, mostly in the Gulf of Mexico. Lease bonuses, rental fees and oil and gas royalties have brought the federal govern- ment billion. None of the revenue has been shared with the states. government had removed the possibility of making a good profit if prices go up. The association president said there would be no new mines in B.C. until the provin- cial and federal governments settle their differences on mining royalties. He said another factor hurting the industry is the high cost of opening new mines. "When we put Gibraltar (a large copper mine) into production three years ago it cost us he said. "The same mine would cost million to put in today." Mr. Little said Japanese smelters are losing money and their government is not letting them sell surplus metal on the world markets. "This is resulting in huge stockpiles of metals." Oil output off TEL AVIV (AP) Produc- tion has dropped at the Israeli held Abu Rudeis oil field in the southwest Sinai desert, of- ficials said today. The news- paper Haaretz says output has declined from a peak of 37.8 million barrels in 1973 to an estimated 28 million barrels this year.
