From the Paper:

"Environmental concerns, high cost of domestically produced oil does not promise huge oil increases from domestic resources. But US will have continued access to international market. Rehabilitation of Libya in international community will allow US to import oil from this desperate for cash country. Even Russia has offered to sell Oil to America. The present panic in the oil markets is due to the uncertain political situation. It seems very likely that as soon as this crisis is over we will perhaps once again discard our search for increased domestic supplies and go back to the business as usual of relying on cheap supplies from the Gulf."
