ABSTRACT
The article focuses on oil import quotas in United States. A dramatic decline on oil imports and big trade surplus in February and March was documented after U.S. President Gerald Ford imposed a modest tariff on imported oil. Because of the decline, the Congressional Democrats immediately took action and proposed an elaborate quota scheme to replace the tariff imposed by President Ford.
