L.a. In 25 Years

May 08, 1988

The optimistic predictions in "L.A. 2013" are based on the unstated assumption that an unlimited supply of inexpensive gasoline will be available in L.A. Unfortunately, by the late 1990s, oil reserves and production will be declining in all non-OPEC countries, and, thereafter, the world will depend on the OPEC nations for its oil imports. Our elected government is understandably reluctant to face up to this unpleasant fact due to the vehement objections of two groups of voters--namely those who buy gasoline, and those who sell it.

L.F. IVANHOE

PRESIDENT, NOVUM CORP.
