Two oil conferences may ease global freeze Living costs higher in eastern centres OTTAWA (CP) Costs of recreation, education and reading are highest in Montreal and lowest in Charlottetown, Statistics Canada's latest report com- paring living costs across Can- ada showed Friday. The report, based on December prices, said Montreal residents paid three per cent more than the national average for recreation, education and reading, and Charlottetown residents paid eight-per-cent less than the nationwide average. Halifax and Ottawa costs were equal with the national average. Thus, with average prices equalling 100, for every. paid by residents of Halifax and Ottawa for recreation, reading and education, Montreal residents paid and Charlottetown residents paid 92 cents. Costs in Edmonton were six per cent below the national average; St. John's Winnipeg and Regina four per cent less, St. John (N.B.) three per cent less and Vancouver two per cent less. Toronto costs were one per cent higher than the average. The report is one of a new series showing different living costs levels in 11 cities across the nation. Statistics Canada's regular monthly reports on living costs show only the amount of increase each month in the nation and in regional cities, not the difference in price levels from city to city. The new series previously gave comparative costs of transportation, health- personal care and tobacco- alcohol. Recreation, education and reading account for an esti- mated six per cent of typical family living costs, trans- portation 15 per cent, health- personal care five per cent and alcohol-tobacco six per cent, for a total of 32 per cent of typical living costs. The 'new series will compare housing, clothing and food costs in later reports. In updating figures on trans- portation, the new report said St. John's costs were highest in December at eight per cent above the national average and Winnipeg's lowest at nine per cent below the average. Montreal was six per cent higher than the national average, Saint John five per cent, Halifax two per cent, Ottawa and Charlottetown four per cent higher and Toronto even with the average Regina was seven per cent below the average, Edmonton six per cent and Vancouver two per cent lower VIENNA (Reuter) Two conferences that may bring an easing of the global squeeze on oil prices and supplies will be held here this weekend by sen- ior ministers of oil-producing countries. The ministers from the 12- member Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) will meet today to set prices for a three- month period beginning April 1 OPEC sources said the ministers are almost certain to freeze prices at existing record levels. The ministers will be given details of a survey showing that further price increases would be economically justified. The price-freeze is expected to be a political rather than a financial decision. On Sunday, ministers of the Organization of Arab Petroleum Exporting Countries (OAPEC) are to resume a discussion begun in Tripoli Wednesday on the relaxation of a five-month Arab oil embargo against the United States and the Nether- lands. OPEC and OAPEC have overlapping memberships. Informed reports from the Middle East suggested the Arab states have agreed in principle to lift the embargo against the U.S. but not against the Netherlands. Egypt and Saudi Arabia have pressed for the embargo against the U.S. to be lifted as a reward for State Secretary Henry Kissinger's efforts to- wards military disengagement in the Middle East Libya and Syria were re- ported opposed to a lifting of the embargo, with Algeria fa- voring a compromise that would end the ban for two months. The Arab conference on em- bargo policy was shifted here because OPEC's headquarters is in Austrian capital, and because seven Arab produc- Iraq, Kuwait, Libya, Qatar, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab to both organizations. Bahrain, Egypt and Syria also belong to OAPEC, which has its headquarters in Kuwait Iraq and Syria are expected to boycott the Arab conference on the embargo. The price issue concerns only OPEC. Today's meeting of ministers will be attended' by the entire OPEC membership, which includes Ecuador, Indonesia, Iran, Nigeria and Venezuela, as well as the seven Arab countries belonging to both organizations. Most countries will be represented by oil ministers. OPEC countries supply 85 per cent of the crude oil imported by Western, countries. Do Not Miss It!
