As used in this subparagraph (1), the term "natural gas liquids" means liqu^d*"?^ ^^^ natural gas products and other hydrocarbons such as isopentane, propane, and butane, or mixtures thereof, recovered from natural gas by means other than refining. Within such maximum level, imports of unfinished oils shall not exceed such percentum of the permissible imports of crude oil and unfinished oils as the Secretary may determine and imports of finished products (other than residual fuel oil to be used as fuel) shall not exceed the level of imports of such products into these districts during the calendar year 1957. (c) The Secretary, having taken into account the standards prescribed for allocation of imports of crude oil and unfinished oils into Puerto Rico, any actions taken pursuant to section 4, and shipments from Puerto Rico into Districts I - IV, shall establish for each allocation period a maximum level of imports into Puerto Rico of crude oil and unfinished oils which, in his judgment, is consonant with the objectives of this proclamation. The maximum level of imports of finished products into Puerto Rico for a particular allocation period shall be approximately the level of such imports during all or part of the calendar year 1958 as determined by the Secretary to be consonant with the purposes of this proclamation or such higher level as the Secretary may determine is required to meet a demand in Puerto Rico for finished products that would not otherwise be met. 3.
