Ret t0 get a preliminary Reading on this tan Quot Rand 0f a series three articles the on the suburbs Are examined by Terry Ryan associated press writer the Energy crisis initially a threat to suburban. Mobility is More a nagging irritation now in most. American suburbs. Its something to worry about along with food prices and school taxes and maybe politics. The gasoline lines have vanished and you might even get your Windshield washed again. The economic Impact was not overwhelming except for those who lost jobs or live in All electric Homes. But something has changed says the residents of Suburbia. And planners and builders see More changes Down the Road. Associated press reporters recently visited a Cross Section of suburban communities from affluent Wellesley West of Boston to Middle class Glendale North of los Angeles. They talked to people in supermarkets service stations City Halls and on the streets. In addition to a widespread cynicism about the whole thing they found a few tangible changes produced by the Energy crisis a most people Are driving less and Many say they will keep it Down. A i think my husband likes the lower Gas Bills a said mrs. Lyle Holmes a Wellesley mass., housewife. A gasoline shortages have coaxed people aboard mass transit. Commuter buses and trains enjoy a new found popularity. The cry now is for better service in the suburbs themselves. No one knows if it will last. A people Are staying closer to Home. Weekend jaunts Are no longer a presumption and some people even think twice i about going across town. Many suburban residents relate the Energy crisis to larger problems challenging their lifestyle. Rose Merisko pushed her shopping cart Down a supermarket aisle in West Mifflin pa., a Blue Collar suburb 20 minutes driving time from Pittsburgh. A its disgusting a she said. A never time i shop prices have jumped. Why they raise them right before my eyes. India drilling offshore new Delhi. India apr India is caressing the Hope that signs of offshore Oil will run into a Black Bonanza to help beat the Energy crisis. The press carries almost daily reports of new optimistic developments in the extensive Indian search for Oil Inland and under territorial Waters. Attention centers on the Bombay High a geological Lump under the arabian sea about 115 Miles Northwest of Bombay. The Petroleum and chemicals minister d k. Boro Oah told parliament recently that the Indian Oil and natural Gas commission will press explorations there and begin pumping Oil a within three foreign experts Are less optimistic emphasizing that the Bombay High drilling team has hit Only one on the three positive holes necessary for conclusive indication that Oil exists in commercial quantities. But prime minister Indira Gandhi a government is unable to wait. Hard pressed by increased Oil prices and laced with unrest Over food prices and scarce grains it is seizing the Ray of Hope and trying to turn it into a Beacon. A Petroleum ministry study predicts that annual Indian Oil production will Rise from an insignificant 50,000 barrels in 1973 to nearly 84 million barrels in five years. That would go a Long Way toward softening the blow of foreign Oil imports a 112 million barrels in 1973 a that Are expected to Cost almost half India s anticipated Export earnings of $3 billion this year. A and it seems that this Energy crisis is the same old Story. Everyone wants to get their pockets full without worrying about the Little Man. Pretty soon we re going to have nothing but the Rich and the poor and no Middle the University of Pittsburgh Scenter for Urban research recently studied response to the Energy crisis in the Pittsburgh area. Two thirds of those surveyed lived in suburbs. Most were White married and at least High school graduates. Over 40 per cent said they drive less on sundays and about the same number visit relatives and friends less often now. About 25 per cent go out to restaurants less frequently and there was a marked decline of interest in buying new cars. Beyond that 82 per cent were dissatisfied with the general conditions in America today. And 55 per cent said life would be no better in 1976. A first we have watergate then the meat crisis and the wheat crisis and now the Energy crisis. The people Are telling us that they can to put up with All these different things a said or. Jiri Nehnevajsa director of the Urban research Center. In the Long run say planners and builders the Energy crisis will move people closer to where they. Work. They talk of redevelopment of the inner suburbs a movement away from the fringe of the freeway systems. They also talk of condominiums and town houses As replacements for the single family Home. These trends they emphasized were there before the arabs Ever thought of an Oil embargo. The Energy crisis has simply added momentum. A developments will still be spread out but there is a trend to move a Little closer in a said f. R. Clancy a Phoenix ariz., land Developer. The effects of the Energy crisis Are clearly visible in the Phoenix area a 1,000-Square-mile desert sprawl almost totally dependent on the automobile. A $4,000 trailer sits in front of Richard Morrison a Home in Tempe ariz., a Middle class Community 30 minutes from Phoenix. A we done to use it too much these Days a said mrs. Morrison. Helen Everhart another Tempe resident said her driving has been reduced to essentials. A pleasure trips Are out and i shop less often a she said. The same things hold True in Glendale a fairly typical a Southern California suburb. Use of local Parks and recreation facilities is up considerably.
