Subject

Energy--United States

Description

Gas lines in Maryland during the 1973 Oil Crisis, which began in October when member state of the Organization of Arab Petroleum Exporting Countries (OAPEC) initiated an oil embargo on the United States. The embargo began in response to American involvement in the Yom Kippur War between Israel and various other countries in the Middle East and North Africa. The crisis resulted in a gasoline shortage and a spike in prices. Filling stations across the country experienced long lines as people scrambled for gas. The embargo also had a substantial effect on the gas turbine market.
