OPEC Oil Embargo
: October 17th, 1973- March 18th, 1974
OPEC (organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries): an organization of countries formed in 1961 to agree on a common policy for the production and sale of petroleum.
OPEC consists of Iran, Iraq, Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, Venezuela, Qatar, Indonesia and many other eastern countries.
On October 17,1993, the Arab oil producing nations imposed an oil embargo on the United States due to its support of Israel after the unexpected attacks by Egypt and Syria.
The price of the available oil in the United States raised from $3 to $11.65
Caused U.S. Citizens to decrease transportation in oil-consuming vehicles
The OPEC oil embargo had caused a deficit of oil but may have encouraged the decrease in use of non-renewable resources.
By using less non-renewable resources such as oil, the pollution had decreased significantly.
