Oil prices are rising after the U-S government said today, American crude supplies fell unexpectedly last week.

Light sweet crude for September delivery is up a dollar and 84 U.S. cents, to nearly $115 a barrel, on the New York Mercantile Exchange. The advance is for the time being halting a month-long slide, which took crude prices nearly 35-dollars below a July 11th high of $147.27 a barrel.

Meantime, the new cross Canada survey of retail gasoline prices shows the national average has again dropped below a dollar and 30 cents a litre. Close to two-thirds of the sixty centres on the survey recorded a price drop but, once again for the sixth week in a row, Fort St. John filling stations ignored the drop in crude prices, and posted a common price of a $1.454.
