(No location given) In Denver and parts of Kansas and Nebraska schools had to shut down because of fuel shortages this winter. In Iowa and Illinois grain rotted because grain elevator fuel unavailable in sufficient supply. Elsewhere industries short of fuel. Because of high exploration costs and low profits, fuel companies not exploring new oil supplies very vigorously. Govt. allowing more oil imports now. Nixon will probably call for higher prices. Critics say oil companies too greedy and want excessive profits. Environmental concerns block or delay developments of new oil supplies. Example is Alaska pipeline.
