In response to a Congressional request, an expeditious analysis of the energy and economic effects of the Iranian oil situation was prepared.

The net apparent shortfall to the United States will be about 3 percent of total consumption. The shortfall will not be large enough to result in a general activation of the allocation program of the International Energy Agency (IEA), but further major cutbacks by other countries could be disasterous. The Department of Energy (DOE) has a number of programs that possibly could be used to overcome the shortfall and help meet the United States commitment to the IEA.
