Our readers will be interested in the new energy stamps of the U.S. Postal Service, issued to urge energy conservation and energy development.
Postal officials say their service has a special concern about energy, since they have a vast fleet of vehicles and more than 30,000 buildings. We hope they and government officials in general federal, state and local will encourage their employees to keep energy usage to the very minimum.
We want to see the United States meet the energy crunch not by increasing the red tape of a giant bureaucracy, but by true conservation in use, encouragement of more domestic production, and allowing the free market to operate while the consumer is fully protected.
