United States Energy Policy


The United States is at a pivotal crossroads in energy usage. Currently importing approximately 7 million barrels a day of oil from foreign nations, the United States has become dependent on foreign oil. Such dependency on other nations is concerning, particularly given the global market for commodities, and the risk and volatility associated with oil. This paper outlines a history of United States energy policy, covers changes in technology enabling America to drill resources previously thought unrecoverable, explains the risks associated with oil markets, and the impact they could have on the United States, and covers several possible policy changes the United States government, particularly the executive branch, could make to reduce America’s dependency on foreign oil.White Paper
