With gas prices reaching upwards of $4.00 per gallon, Boston University history professor Bruce Schulman teaches a course about another energy crisis nearly forty years ago. Then, during the 1970s, President Jimmy Carter struggled with a substantial petroleum shortage amidst rising demand. Students learn about events leading up to President Carter's "malaise" speech and the mood of the country at the time.
