National Review Bulletin;1/25/1974, Vol. 26 Issue 4, pB1
The author reflects on the issue of energy crisis as a mere propaganda in the U.S. According to the author, most of the people in the country believe that there must be some misleading appearance behind the said energy crisis. It is said to be a way of distracting the attention of the citizens to increase prices and profits among big oil companies. The author stressed that, what is being disorienting regarding the said energy affair is its abruptness in appearance.
