The time has come to commit ourselves to the exploration of alternative energy production in the United States. We have become too dependant on oil, most of which is provided to us from overseas. This is why gas prices are not within our control.
If we can find alternative methods to produce energy in America and stop relying so heavily on oil and gas, the price of gas will go down. Moreover, alternative methods of energy production are less costly, more efficient, and better for the environment.
