Chevron alone in oil
NEW YORK (AP)-Several major oil
companies said yesterday) they won't
match the wholesale price cut of three
cents a gallon on fuel announced by
Standard Oil Co. of California.
Representatives of Exxon, Mobil,
Texaco, and Shell declined comment on
the move by Standard Oil of California
(Chevron) to decrease the price of
diesel fuel, gasoline, and heating oil,
saying only that their companies had
not changed prices.
THE SPOKESPERSONS also said
their companies do not speculate on
future price changes. Several noted the
Justice Department has complained
that such speculation amounts to anti-
competitive "signaling" of prices bet-
They also noted that companies don't
necessarily face the same costs in sup-
plying buyers with products, and costs
can vary by region.'
"The prices we are paying for crude
oil continue to escalate," said Michael
Thomson, a spokesman for Standard
Oil Co. of Indiana. "Chevron's actions
were the result of a set of circumstan-
ces unique to that company."
Chevron said the new prices "result
from a moderating trend in Chevron's
costs, brought about by its ability to
supply its customers with more produc-
ts processed in its own refineries."
As a result, Chevron, the nation's
seventh-largest gasoline seller, said it
"has been able. to reduce purchases of
costly supplies of finished products it
formerly had to buy on the spot

University's financial resources.
JUDGE PRATT could decide
whether or not to dismiss the case, or he
could reserve his decision awariting
more evidence concerning the Univer-
sity's relationship with the state.
Even if the monetary claims against
the, Regents and engineering professors
as University officials are dismissed,
the suit may still proceed against the
defendants as individuals.
"The question this court is con-
sidering is a question of some moment
for the University and state agencies,"
University attorney Robert Vercruysee
told Judge Pratt.
A similar question was almost ad-
dressed in a 1974 suit against the
University. In that suit, as in the Mar-
wil case, the University moved to
dismiss the claims for monetary
damages against the University based
on elevepth amendment restrictions.
Tho judge decided to hold a hearing to
determine whether the University is an
agency of the state of Michigan, but the
plaintiffs withdrew their case before
that hearing could be held.
Vercruysee said in his brief,
ho ever, that "the Michigan courts
ha e consistently ruled that the
