Solution

The correct options are
A

supply more oil at a given price


C

supply the same amount of oil at a lower price


If the costs of production go down, the supply curve shifts to the right as the willingness to sell would be greater at any given price. Hence, 'Standard Oil' would supply more oil at a given price and the same amount of oil at a lower price.
