THE NATIONAL ENERGY PROBLEM--DEMAND AND CONSERVATION OUTLOOK

Studies have been made which indicate that the unconstrained daily energy demand in the United States will approximately double between 1970 and 1990, from 32 million bbl crude oil equivalent (COE) to 67 million bbl COE. These same studies suggest, however, that a savings of as much as 8.6 million bbl COE might be achieved by 1990 if a maximum conserviation effort were to be made in themore critical consumption areas. These include the utility, transportation, industrial, commercial, and residential markets.
