1981: Ronald Reagan uses an executive order to lift remaining domestic petroleum price and allocation controls in the United States, so that prices would be wholly determined by the free market in the U.S. The move, which was started under President Jimmy Carter, helped bring an end the 1979 energy crisis and begin the 1980s oil glut.
