ABSTRACT
Argues against the apprehensions of drying out of oil reserves of the U.S. in the near future. Estimation of the oil reserves of the U.S. to 20 billion barrels and consumption to the tune of one and a half billion barrels; Falsification of the comparison of visible resources and rate of use as there is possibility of discovery of newer scientific oil reserves; Argument that total world supplies of oil will certainly be available for total world use; Possibility that the total oil supply in the U.S. might be far greater than the visible oil reserve; Argument that faster one takes oil out of the ground, the greater is the proportionate waste; Estimates of scientists that there are nearly one hundred trillion cubic feet of natural gas within the continental U.S.
