motorists will soon face an advance
In the price of gas, now sold at 28
cents 3 gallon, according to W. It.
Speck, local manager for tho Stand
ard Oil Co. Just what thU advance
will be, Mr. Speck has not yet becu
advised, but rumors are current that
It will amount to four cents a gallon.
Under tho existing statute, gas mar
keted In Oregon must give a Haunio
gravity test of GO, while in other
sjates in the union a G4 degree stand
ard Is used. This Is ono reason, Mr.
Speck points out, that the nupply In
Oregon ran short nt various times
during the year, general stocks ot
gasoline being unavailable for dis
tribution in this state. Not only this,
ho declares, but the product used
elsewhere In tho United States has
been found to be Just as efficient as
tho grndo demanded In. Oregon.
"Gravity is a poor measure, ot tho
quality of gasoline," Mr. Speck said,
In mentioning tho proposed prico
raise. "Tho accepted standard for
measurement ot quality -is the boil
ing point, and eron In aviation,
where the quality ot gas used must
ho beyond question, there la no
thought ot a gravity test.
