Import quota removed
to avert oil shortage
WASHINGTON (Reuter) - President Nixon yesterday suspended
quotas on oil imports as part of a wide ranging program to avert a
looming energy crisis and a threatened shortage of gasoline and home
Nixon removed all existing tariffs on imported crude oil and
petroleum products and permitted supplies to enter the United States
He also suspended direct government control over the quantity of
imported crude oil and refined products.
Under the new system, holders of current licenses may import
petroleum exempt from fees up to the level of their 1973 quota allo-
Nixon's move was accompanied by a request to Congress to remove
government restrictions on the price of newly located natural gas, used
for industry and home heating, and an urgent appeal to the American
people to conserve energy.
He said in a message to Congress industry must design products
that use electricity more effectively and that Americans must turn off
unneeded lights - as the late President Lyndon Johnson did in the
White House - make sure their cars were properly tuned, and cut
the use of heating and air conditioning.
The president's action in suspending all quotas was aimed at bring-
AP Photo ing in more foreign oil on an emergency basis for the short term,
while developing domestic production in the long run.
