The usefulness of resource and reserve estimates of the Nation's primary energy fuels, including oil, gas, coal, and uranium, can be greatly improved. These estimates are prepared and reported on by Federal agencies.

The estimates prepared have been an attempt to measure the potential short- and long-term domestic supplies of these fuels. Review of the reported energy resource and reserve estimates demonstrates that there is a need for more data to assess resources and reserves and a need for more reliable resource and reserve estimates. In order to increase the usefulness of reserve estimates for decisionmaking purposes, information is needed on the effects of cost-price relationships on energy source recoverability.
