Capitol Crude: The US Oil Policy Podcast

Do the hustle: US oil imports, production and policy in the 1970s and today

September 19, 2016 (16:34 mins)



Meghan Gordon and Brian Scheid

Platts senior editors Brian Scheid and Meghan Gordon take you back to the 1970s with John Kingston, director of global market insights for S&P Global. It was an era of low US crude oil production, high prices, long gasoline lines and disco, and saw the advent of policies that shaped topics at the forefront of today's oil industry.

Kingston talks about the new book "Panic at the Pump: The Energy Crisis and the Transformation of American Politics in the 1970s" by Meg Jacobs as well as his memories of what prompted certain policy decisions then and how it compares to today.

Find more from Kingston about this topic on The Barrel blog.

Check back every Monday for the latest analysis of US oil policy news from leading Platts editors covering the Capitol. E-mail the editor at brian.scheid@platts.com.
