Yes. The Department of Energy was created in 1977, partly in response to the OPEC oil embargo of 1973, and the rationing and inflated gasoline prices that followed. Former agencies included in the department were the Federal Energy Administration, the Energy Research and Development Administration, and the Federal Power Commission.
