Texaco, third largest U.S. oil firm, explained that stocks of these middle distillates were expanded over last year’s "dangerously low” levels through imports and increased production to build up sufficient supplies for this winter. The Texaco statistics show gasoline stocks Jan. 1 about the same-'sis last year's and heavy or residual fuel oil inventories up slightly. However, crude oil feedstocks, the source of new petroleum product supplies, were down more than seven per cent, Texaco said. Big wheat sale made to Japan WINNIPEG (CP) - The Tribune says Japan has purchased 35.5 million bushels of Canadian Wheat valued at more than ^200 million. The newspaper, quoting grain trade sources, says the unusually large sale to Japan indicated that country is concerned about world grain supplies and is convinced that prices will continue to rise. The Japanese have general' ly purchased grain on a shortterm basis every few weeks. The sale reported is about five times the normal order with the bulk to be delivered by the end of July, A spokesman for the Canadian Wheat Board has refused to confirm or deny reports of the sale. The Tribune said the grain purchased' was No. 1 CW Canadian western red spring wheat, 13.5 per cent protein, at a price of about $5.65 a bushel, basis Vancouver. Since the sale, the Vancouver export price for the same grade of wheat has risen to $5,86% a bushel, a new high. Everybody seems to believe that wheat has reached its highest plateau, but that doesn't seem to be the case,” commented one Winnipeg grain broker. “Japan was obviously worried about the prices and felt that they will be going even higher in the future," In the past, wheat board officials have predicted that wheat will be in short supply this year and have said the United States may have made export commitments that it will be unable to fill as the year progresses.

Information from meetings with fertilizer manufacturers indicates enough suRiUes will be available to meet demand, he told Harold Danforth (PC— Kent-Essex) in the Comn^nns. Mr. Danforth asked fora detailed statement on stocks and anticipated prices. Mr. Whelan said he plans to make one after further meetings with industry officials. A report released by the Kemptville, Ont., agricultural college says the U.S. decision to lift the price ceiling on domestically-used ffcrliliiers, and to release 40 million acres from its land bank has increased the demand for fer-tiliier. Mr. Whelan told Angus MacLean (PC-Malpeqile) that one Prince Edward Island fertilizer plant is "running full blast now,” the earliest start ever, and others are planninij to begin production lioon. The company said gasoline stocks amount to less than one week’s supply and gasoline output was likely to diminish further because of inadequate crude oil supplies as well as government directives to produce more heating oil. Texaco said its refineries are now operating at a^at 85 per cent of maximum capacity but that refining operations would have to be reduoed because U.S. production of crude is peaking and foreign oil is being curtailed by the Arab oil embargo. The Texaco statement apparently was in reply to publish^ charges that the energy shortage might have been contrived by the oil industry. The figures released by Texaco: —Middle distillates: 22 million barrels, compared with 15.7 million a year earlier. —Gasoline: 23.3 million barrels, compared with 23,2 million barrels Jan, 1 last year. —Heavy fuel oil: 7.6 million barrels, up slightly from 7.4 million a year before. —Crude oil feedstocks: 17.6 million barrels, compared with 19.0 million barrels Jan. 1, 1973.
