(p.228) Chapter 14 The Energy Stalemate
Gerald Ford and the Challenges of the 1970s

Yanek Mieczkowski

University Press of Kentucky

This chapter examines the lack of action to address the energy crisis in the U.S. in 1975. The response to former President Gerald Ford's energy proposals was generally negative. Business leaders voiced objections, while utility and petrochemical executives complained that the imposition of an import fee on petroleum products would hurt their industries. In addition, there was also no congressional action on the issue, which led some experts to believe that energy became a victim of the visceral desire of the members of the Ninety-fourth Congress to stay in office.
