May 1977
National Review;5/13/1977, Vol. 29 Issue 18, p532
The article focuses on the current energy crisis in the U.S. Energy experts say that the country has ample supplies of hydrocarbons in the ground but the problem is of getting them out. President Jimmy Carter's proposals focus entirely on demand and almost totally ignore the equally important problem of supply and do little to encourage the development of alternative sources. The Republican leadership is supporting several urban groups and the AFL-CIO to oppose the proposed gasoline tax.
