In this article the author assesses the advantages and disadvantages of oil import fee as an appropriate energy policy measure in the U.S. in 1982. The author explores the influence of the U.S. oil imports on world oil price. There are uncertainties about the size of gap between private and social cost of oil imports. Meanwhile, one option of the gap between private incentives and social benefits of import reduction arises from the effect of imports on the world oil price. In addition, the author states that in order to come to a reasoned judgment about the wisdom of a tariff it is necessary to weigh the significance of a number of uncertain factors.
