  • It has been nearly three years since the Arab Oil Embargo awakened the nation to a crisis in energy. Still, a consistent national energy policy has not emerged. No doubt, this has been due in part to a relaxation of the short-term crisis atmosphere; but primarily it can be attributed to the enormous complexity of the energy issue. There is so much we yet do not know, that the evolution of policy may take many more years. There are three broad areas where local government intervention can affect energy conservation. These include: (1) emergency allocation of fuels; (2) information and exhortation; and (3) policies which may influence individual energy consumption.
