Through mechanization coal mines have become mass-production factories both underground and aboveground, and output per man-day in the United States is now from 3 to 30 times as much as that of any other country active in this industry.

This suggests that, when supplies of gas and petroleum become scarce, it would be possible to turn to coal. Bituminous Coal.
