Abstract:

This report analyzes the current energy situation with respect to the availability of mobility fuels and presents recommended guidelines and policies that should lessen the barriers impeding fuel availability to DoD during peace time conditions. This report concentrates on current issues and recommends strategies that can be implemented immediately and are geared towards alleviating short-term problems. We have concluded that there are a number of factors that are impairing the ability of DoD to secure adequate supplies of mobility fuels. These factors include changes in market conditions, the lack of flexibility in procurement practices, the continued uncertainty over legislative and regulatory issues, and the decontrol of JP-4 and JP-5 jet fuels.
