Energy Independence

Energy independence refers to energy security and a reduced dependency on foreign oil for the vehicles we drive.   The phrase embodies the concept of economic balance and protection from insecurities caused by an over-dependence on petroleum. 
Today, over 80 percent of world petroleum reserves are controlled by countries that have the power to manipulate supply and price with impunity. (Source: American Energy Indepence / Photo: Shutterstock)
