Mr. and Mrs. Frank Zubik, Owners
You're not going to pay more to buy from us
... and we don't blame you
So, to get your business, we're going to try to supply you with all
the petroleum products you need and with the best petroleum products
we can make, at prices that are no higher than those of other companies.
Every other oil company in the industry ts trying to do the same.
They are our competitors; we are theirs.
We compete in the search for oil, to that we can be in a better
position to supply your demands. Our geological and geophysical crews are
in the field >65 dayi a year seeking subsurface reservoirs which may con-
tain oil. So are the crews of other oil companies. Sometimes we find oil
where others couldn't; sometimes they get production where we have failed.
Competition within the industry finds more oil than any other system.
We compete in production, and the oil company with the most

operated by independent bust-
efficient production and conservation methods has more oil to sell.
And wc compete in the manufacture of the petroleum products you
use. In our laboratories, and in those of our competitors, some of the
world's foremost scientists arc working at a never-ending task of im<
proving gasoline i and motor oils for your car, and the other petroleum
products you use every day; and to discover new oil products which will
be equally as useful to you. A good many of these scientists only recently
have returned to their peacetime laboratories; during the war, they were on
loan to the government for important and secret wartime scientific' tasks.
You arc the beneficiary of this competition within the oil industry.
It assures you the lowest possible price
for petroleum products (the increase
in the price you pay for gasoline is
less than half the increase in the price
of food and clothing); it gives you
more and better gisolincs and motor
oils; it gives you improved service at
