The article reflects on the oil crisis experienced by the United States. The crisis became inevitable due to the presence of five factors including the rapid economic growth of the Western nations, the exponentially increasing application of energy, the derivation of this energy more preponderantly from petroleum, the expanding reliance on locations outside Western political jurisdiction as source of the petroleum, and the appearance of a non-Western, nuclear-armed superpower.
