Congress of the U.S., Washington, DC. Senate Committee on Interior and Insular Affairs.
This publication is a background document for the National Fuels and Energy Policy Study authorized by Senate Resolution 45. The purpose of this report is to identify the issues, to describe the impact of present policy on gasoline supply and demand, and to suggest potential measures to reduce the shortfall. This document is published to assist members of the Committee on Interior and Insular Affairs, and other interested parties, in their understanding of the issues inherent in the formulation of a long-term National Energy Policy which assures the continued welfare of the Nation, including balanced growth, safeguarding and enhancing the quality of the environment, and national security. Topics under discussion include supply and demand; impact of shortages on the consumer, agriculture, and independent marketers; and proposed remedial actions. The concluding summary indicates that the gasoline shortage is the result of several interacting factors and will persist for some time. Two appendices contain energy related legislation and references. (Author/MA)
