If you have been driving in America at all these days surely you have noticed the price of gasoline rising. The increase of gasoline prices from $1.26 per gallon in January of 2000 to $2.89 per gallon today, ten years later, is an amazing 129% increase. If this seems like a large number to you consider the fact that gas prices are predicted to rise to over $5.00 per gallon within the next few years. Many market experts are predicting the increase will occur within the next two years.
Increasing gas prices have been a hot topic in the United States for several years now because of the financial stress it has placed on the US economy. The increasing demand for oil in the United States has triggered the largest exchange of financial wealth in the history of the world; Nearly two billion US dollars a day is exchanged with OPEC to sustain America's supply of oil!
The United States is the world's third largest oil producer. The problem is we are also the largest consumer of oil in the world. By consuming 25% of the world's supply of oil and only producing 8% we are consuming far more oil than we can ever produce. This unstoppable trend has lead to huge dependency on foreign oil and America becoming vulnerable to foreign interests.
The future of the United States, however, is not completely bleak. There has been a discovery of an alternative energy source that can not only meet our needs but exceed them. It has been discovered that the US has enough Natural Gas to measure the equivalent of double Saudi Arabia's oil reserves. With this discovery the US finally has the opportunity to become completely energy independent.
Langley Energy is a company that is in the forefront of Natural Gas energy. Langley Energy has been producing cleaner energy from Natural Gas for many years and shows promise to be a leader in future natural gas exploration and harvesting.
Natural gas is cleaner, cheaper, and more abundant! Just as our forefathers fought the war for of American's to be independent Langley Energy is paving the way for America's energy independence!
