May 30, 1973 THE LETHBRIDGE HBtALO 21 Alberta motorists may get break on fuel prices RED DEER (CP) -The Alberta government is examin- ing ways of lowering the cost of automotive gasoline in Al- berta, says Premier Peter Ixwghecd. Mr. Lougheed said his gov- ernment is developing plans that will affect the cost of gaso- line and that a lowering of the 15-cent-a-gallon fuel tax is one alternative. The premier made the state- ment in an interview during the first leg of a two-day cab- inet tour of central Alberla Ke said Alberta now is keep- fog a running review of gaso- line prices across Canada "in terms of how ours fit in with the rest of the nation." "We are watching pretty carefully as all this develops." The premier compared action on gasoline prices with his administration's ctevelopment of a "two-price" rebate system to protect Alberta consumers from the rising price of natural gas. NO TIME-TABLE Although the government has announced a policy of increas- ing natural gas prices to con- sumers outside Alberta to in sure that a fair value is re- ceived for the resource, a re- bate system for Albertans wil protect them from the impac of the higher price. "Although we are not yet spe- cific as to how we will do it we are naw looking at tha question of the cost of gasoline and what action we might be able to take." Mr. Lougheed said his gov- ernment has not yet developed its gasoline pricing approach enough to determine if pressure should be exerted on oil com- panies to reduce their prices and no time-table has been at- tached to any possible moves. The method of gasoline mar- keting through multiple outlets is such that the government may be restricted in the ap- proaches it can take, the prem- ier said. If the government decides to give Albertans a break on fuel taxes, the relief could be paid for by the added royalty reven- ue the government will receive from the latest increase in the price paid for Alberta crude oil.
