Natural gas demand and prices have risen dramatically in recent years, but the United States is not highly dependent on natural gas imports and new “unconventional” onshore resources are expanding domestic supply. Natural gas has become the fuel of choice for new power plants in the United States because of its low emissions and the. With U.S. demand for gas projected to grow by over 40 percent during the next 15 years, major challenges exist in both finding and developing natural gas deposits and delivering it to end users. Many industry experts and the DOE believe that significant amounts of domestic natural gas .

Energy is essential for a wide range of human activities, both in the United States and around the world, yet its use is the dominant source of emissions of CO 2 and several other important climate forcing agents. In addition to total demand for energy, the type of fuel used and the end-use equipment affect CO 2 emissions. The diversity of ways in which energy is supplied and used provides. What this fails to recognize is that U.S. energy supply and demand are part of world supply and demand over which U.S. market forces do not have control. Low oil and gas prices will not last forever, but while they last, they make effective long term development of domestic oil and gas resources as well as development of alternative energy.

offshore oil and natural gas exploration and development in the United States (“U.S.”) so that the nation can capitalize on industry expertise that has been garnered through years of successful and beneficial exploration, development and production of domestic OCS oil and natural gas resources. This graph represents the relationship of supply and demand according to neoclassical economic theory. "If domestic gas prices rise to $5 per gallon, growth will slow significantly and our quality of life will decline." oil and natural gas all produce about the same amount of global tons of carbon dioxide.
