The manner in which America fulfills her energy needs will be in accordance with a process begun during Theodore Roosevelt's era and expanded throughout this century. By continuing its gradual centralization and aggrandizement the Federal government will eventually control every aspect of energy supply and consumption in the United States. More than any other factor,, the energy situation will cause Americans to realize their dependence upon global politics and affairs. Our stability will not only depend upon meeting domestic energy demands but upon the ability of European and the demands of their economies.
