Abstract: Energy policies in the U.S. are ultimately shaped and influenced by changes in its surrounding economic and political landscapes. When Richard Nixon took over the presidential helms from his predecessor, the nation was at the start of a crucial transition point; the shift from a long era of cheaply abundant energy resources and environmental neglect to one of energy scarcity and a worrying growing dependence on foreign energy imports. U.S. had since 1967, lost its self-sufficiency in domestic petroleum capacity. Using the 4As - Availability (AV), Applicability (AP), Acceptability (AC) and Affordability (AF) as an evaluation framework, this study examines key energy policies implemented starting from the transition point of Nixon Administration in 1969 to the Bush Junior Administration.
