Pagination or Media Count:
One of the important factors affecting the future of the oil producers of the Middle East is the availability of alternative sources of supply elsewhere. Among these, the United States will continue to rank high for a long time to come, as a variety of estimates have shown. Out of the existing welter of estimates, hypotheses, and assumptions about U. S. reserves and production capacity, Bruce Netschert has distilled a consistent set of domestic supply projections as part of an investigation by Resources for the Future of the energy position of the U. S. through 1975.
