The Arab Oil Embargo changed America. Did it change us?

The Millers owned an avocado green 1968 Plymouth Fury Suburban station wagon, just like the one pictured, but theirs didn’t float.

Homelands’ Jonathan Miller has produced a two-part series for PRI’s The World on the 40th anniversary of the end of the Arab Oil Embargo. The first part, which aired yesterday, looks at how (or whether) the embargo changed US energy policy. The second part, which aired today, looks at how (or whether) the embargo changed us. Jon got to interview his dad, listen to speeches by Richard Nixon, and dig into some groovy 1970s music.
