But for the aveiuge American the outlook is bleak. Here is tbe American viewpoint in the first of a four-part series. By BROOKS JACKSON WASHINGTON (AP) iundle up. Grab your wallets. Get ready lor more big price in- Teascs for heat, light, gasoline and everything that -uses energy. Count on occasional 'uel shortages, too. Don't expect .he situation to ease before 1980, if then. That's the general outlook for United States energy problems. Side effects of the energy mess include dirtier oceans, dir- Lier air, radiation poisoning, more strip-mine gashes in the American landscape, even ai international currency crisis. How did the U.S. get into thii mess? Blame a laggard govemmenl that ignored warnings for at least 20 years. Blame the drive of major oil, gas, and coal companies for high profits End low taxes while demanding more economic in ccntives to produce more. Blame nature for putting more cheap oil under Saud Arabia than tinder the U.S. and the Soviet Union combined. Blame the American con sumer, who makes up six pe cent of the world's population but gohbles up 33 per cent o the world's energy supplies And he thirsts for more. An early coid snap last fal caught fuel suppliers with thei eserves down. Seven Denver schools closed or curtailed their ictivities. A Chicago Iruck stop reported 6 trucfa stranded and no diesel uel available. Iowa bought up uel and rationed it to the neediest users. The governor of Nebraska turned down the ther- mostat three degrees at the stale capitol. The fall squeeze continued roughly from September through January. Now govern- ment emergency planners have dusted off standby rationing plans because tliey see possible gasoline shortages in scattered areas next summer. Meanwhile, the oil industry is proclaiming an "energy ig million worth of tele- vision commercials to warn Ehat the U.S. may be running out of oil. That's partially true, but there is still plenty of oil, gas and coal in tiic world. Esti- mates vary. Still, the U.S. Geological Sur- vey figures that enough coal has been found in the U.S. alone to last for two centuries, maybe five. It estimates that it will take another 30 years to pump out the bulk of America's do- mestic oil, and another 30 years beyond that to come close to ex- hausting foreign supplies. So why the shortages now? AMERICANS GLUTTONS Government and industry re- porls agree on these underlying answers: are energy glut- tons. The interior department figures Americans increased their use of energy by an aver- age of 3.1 per cent every year since 1947. Lately the rate has been much higher, about 4.8 per cent between 1965 and 1970. The National Petroleum Cotn- cit estimates that future de- mand will double every 14 years, unless Americans lower their standard of living or find more efficient ways to use energy, such as riding public transport instead of driving au- tomobiles. energy demand soared, the e a s y-to-get supplies dwindled.
