P NOW Lone Star's annual gas bill is four times what it was just five years ago. The average price Lone Star has had to pay producers for the gas we buy has gone up to about two-and-one-half times what we were paying just one year ago. Because Lone Star must pass on these gas cost increases, your gas bills this winter are substantially higher than they were last year. And further rate increases are required to cover our cost of service. We know you don't enjoy paying these higher utility bills, but we have no other choice. And we believe you would rather have natural gas from Lone Star than the alternate forms of energy such as electricity, wood, fuel oil or coal. Lone Star makes no profit on that .portion of your gas bill which passes on increases in the average cost of gas we buy. In fact, Lone Star Gas Company utility profits have declined 56 per cent since 1972. Even with a full flow-through of its gas costs from the producer to the customer, Lone Star would lose money because of Gross Recei2ts Taxes (those taxes paid to each city uhder our franchises on gross revenues). The only way Lone Star can continue to provide natural gas to its customers is through rates that include all changes in the cost of purchased gas. It is also important that we recover other costs of service that are no longer covered by our margins on gas sold to residential and commercial customers. Our residential and commercial customers are in the enviable position of being able to get all the gas they want. There is NO SHORTAGE OF GAS FOR OUR RESIDENTIAL AND COMMERCIAL CUSTOMERS THIS WINTER! And with your support, we hope to be saying that for [ III II AMERICAN HATS R. $3o.oo.. 20 STRAW HATS ...... ....qw..,. .... $.5 O0 SMALL GIRLS Reg. up ,o =2_=3_= 4 1BLOUSES ,,., .ow MEN'S SUITS 25%, LADLES BLOUSES JEANS 2 Tables $9 s5 LEVI COAT S .... ...:...:...o.... ! 2500 COMFY COATS ..... ......:....o.o.......$ LADIES & MENS TONY LAMA Reg. $79.95 ..... .$5250 Lizzard $97.50...69" S SHIRT SALE KNITS... $]2 s .o,.,o.
