Summary

Production of natural gas in the U.S. fell from 650 billion m3 (23 trillion ft3) annually in the early 1970s to 540 billion m3 (19 trillion ft3) in 1980. The projection for 1986 is 480 billion m3 (17 trillion ft3). Domestic petroleum will decline slightly to 1.1 million m3/d (7 million barrels/d). Conservation at American Standard yielded $5.7 million in savings in 1980 and will cumulatively have saved $72 million by 1986.
