Sends Gasoline Up,
Says Omaha Dealer
Although gasoline Is now selling tor
about 60 per cent more than It did last
summer, retail dealers In refined oils
declare that a still higher price Is almost
certain to prevail very soon. Prices now
In Omaha are 14 to 12 cents per gallon,
whereas early In the summer gasoline
sold a low as 10 cents.
"A raise In wholesale price of 1 rent
a gallon has been made by the refineries j
since the last Increase In the retail ,
price," declares L. V. Ntoholaa, "and
that wholesale Increase must shortly be
made up by the retailer. Within a few
days at the latest gasoline prices will
go up still further.
C. It. Alleman, president of the Stand
ard Oil company of Nebraska, a purely
distributing company, also says that
gasoline prices will probably increase
"Shortage in crude oil, due to falling
supply in some United States oil fields
and the total cessation. of the oil trade
with Mexioo and Russia, account for the
high prices," ho says.
Although prices In Omaha and Ne
braska are now lower than In the east
and even tn Texas and Oklahoma, where
the crude oil Is produoed, they cannot
remain so much longer, dealem assert
No relief la In sight, they say, from the
effects of the crude oil shortage.
