Abstract or Summary
  • The developmental patterns of five fuel resources located within the state of Wyoming are examined through time and in relation to several factors external to the location of the fuels. An historic description and inventory of the five fuels: petroleum; natural gas; oil shale; coal; uranium are presented. External factors including governmental activities; economic and technological conditions as well as socio-environmental factors are portrayed as having cyclical Impacts upon the developmental and utilization patterns of Wyoming's fuels. Emphasis is particularly placed upon the ever increasing impact of societal concerns regarding environmental aspects of governmental and economic/technological activities. The external factors are examined in terms of their total impact on Wyoming's role as a regional and national supplier of fuel. Spatial aspects of the fuel resources in terms of their acquisition, transportation facilities and market areas are examined through time using various descriptive and quantitative measures. Policy implications for the successful implementation of federal energy development programs are discussed and evaluated in relation to an investigation of the aforementioned external factors, spatial considerations, and constraints. The author posits that the implica:- tions for policy decisions concerning energy on a national level are magnified at either a regional or state level. The solutions to environmental, economic and social problems as well as the traditional technological difficulties of mining which are found in Wyoming may be a microcosm of solutions which could be implemented on a national scale. Wyoming has traditionally been an exporter of its fuel resources, and the state's economy has generally been reactive to the national and political environment. The state has now begun to assume a role of leadership in energy resource development. Assuming an ever greater role as a regional and national supplier of fuels, Wyoming's future role may become more prominent in national energy affairs.
