North American Natural Gas Supply: Is the Message getting through?

Former United States President, Franklin D. Roosevelt once grumbled, ‘The trouble with this country is that you can’t win an election without the oil block, and you can’t govern with it.’ The National Petroleum Council (NPC) emerged a few years later, in 1946 at the request of President Harry Truman, building on the close cooperation between the U.S. government and the oil industry during World War II. Ever since, the NPC has been a steady force on behalf of the ‘oil block’ in advising successive administrations of the United States government on energy policy, proving that, sometimes at least, it is possible to govern with it.
