Abstract
The analysis showed that of the five commodities studied, the copper industry would appear to be most sensitive to a dramatic rise in energy costs. Phosphates also would appear to be very cost sensitive to a rise in energy prices. It is believed that at least in the next decade these higher energy costs can be absorbed, particularly in view of the necessity of food and the results of inadequate world fertilizer supplies. Coal and the iron and steel industries would appear to be least affected by rising energy costs, provided such rises do not cause recessions or depressions with a decrease in demand. Oil shale, provided gases are recycled, would appear to be little affected costwise by a rise in energy price.
