The Oil Embargo 30 Years Later: Are We Prepared?

The Heritage Foundation's Lehrman Auditorium

The Oil Embargo in October of 1973 will best be remembered for high gasoline prices, long lines to the pump, and the weekend rationing that tested the patience of every American. It also caused an unprecedented economic recession. Most importantly, however, was how the actions of a few authoritarian nations could undermine the economic stability of the West. With the twin specters of terrorism and Middle Eastern conflicts, can the United States weather another catastrophic disruption in its supply of oil?

Please join us as our distinguished panel explores this critical national and economic security issue.
