§579.  Discrimination by suppliers prohibited

A.  No supplier shall discriminate against any purchaser by failing to make allocations as described under the emergency gas shortage allocation plan, or under any rules, regulation or order issued pursuant thereto, or by imposing terms or conditions on sales upon any single purchaser other than those imposed upon all other purchasers at an equivalent level of trade, except as may be lawful and normal in general practice.

B.  It is the intent of this Section that suppliers shall deal with the purchasers of intrastate natural gas supplies under the priority allocation plan provided for by this Part and as it may be changed from time to time by the commissioner.  The emergency gas shortage allocation plan shall not be construed to require intrastate natural gas suppliers to sell to others who do not arrange proper credit or payment for products.  However, a supplier may not require or impose discriminatorily more stringent credit terms or payment schedules on purchasers of intrastate natural gas supplies than the supplier's normal business practice during the first half of 1972.
