OIL, GAS DOMINANT SOURCES OF ENERGY IN U.S.
L.F. Ivanhoe Novum Corp. Santa Barbara, Calif. The U.S. oil and gas industry has a major problem in how to communicate with the general public about the importance of oil and gas to the economy. Oil is the country's basic fuel, so ubiquitous that it is taken for granted like water. Discussions of energy problems should accordingly begin with the global supply and price of crude rather than with the merits of solar or wind power.
