The US is expected to become the world’s largest producer of oil and natural gas this year. According to the Wall Street Journal, the U.S. may have already overtaken Russian output.
The U.S. Energy Information Administration says in July we produced the equivalent of 22-million barrels of oil, natural gas and other fuels “every single day.”
Even with all that home-grown energy being produced, one U.S. company is trying to break the nation’s addiction to oil, especially imported foreign oil by changing what we’re putting in our gas tanks.
The future of refining may now include natural gas, biomass and even solid waste.
