To the editor:
In the early seventies, our old incumbents in Congress and OPEC limited oil production in American. That deal planted the seeds of the latest anti-American demonstrations in the Middle East.
Where was the harm? OPEC would supply America with cheaper oil, our old incumbents would make money, OPEC would make money, gasoline would be cheaper, and environmentalists would rejoice. It was a win-win for everybody but those nasty American oil companies with their overpriced oil and outrageously high 40-cents-per-gallon gasoline.
