The cutoff of oil shipments from Iran has once again focused attention on the United States' continued dependence on substantial levels of oil from unrelaible foreign sources. A summary on recent reviews of energy conservation programs and policies indicates that the major problems which still need attention are: (1) the lack of consistent, specific planning which clearly identifies what contribution energy conservation is to make in the overall national energy plan; (2) the lack of an aggressive, coordinated effort to conserve energy in Federal operations and facilities; and (3) the failure of the administration to develop, and have approved by the Congress, emergency energy conservation and gasoline-rationing plans.
