SHORT-TERM MICROECONOMIC IMPACT OF THE OIL EMBARGO OCTOBER 1973-MARCH 1974

In the early stages of the 1973 oil embargo by the organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries, considerable alarm was expressed throughout industry and government regarding the economic disruptions that might result from shortages of petroleum products. A series of studies of major energy-using and energy sensitive industries was made to ascertain current patterns of energy usage, the spcific impacts of energy shortages, and the steps taken by industry to adjust to such shortages. The information is of value in assessing the ability of industries to adjust to shortages of petroleum products, and in tracing the impacts of energy shortages on the economic performance of industries. Information related to six sectors of the economy is provided in the report. These sectors are basic energy industries, manufacturing, construction, utilities, transportation, and services.
