Rural areas being Hurt by fuel shortages by Don Kendall a farm writer Washington a the governments census of agriculture for 1974 will not be tabulated and published for nearly two years but when it is available the figures May show whether the current fuel shortage is siphoning people from Rural America. Population researchers in the agriculture department have noted for some years that the flood of people from the Countryside to cities after world War ii not Only has abated substantially but has actually reversed in Many areas. But Rural residents a not just Farmers a Are a special Breed. Most have jobs and a High proportion commute considerable distances. Thus according to us a demographers the fuel shortages if they persist could play an important part in whether Rural areas add to or even hold their current populations. A in the Short in some Rural economies will be stimulated by the renewed Hunt for Oil Gas Coal and Timber resulting from the fuel shortage according to an article in farm Index published by the departments economic research service.
