We must open up all of our land to oil and natural gas exploration and allow drilling in known oil and natural gas fields, but enforce strict inspections to prevent another Gulf oil spill. Any oil obtained from U.S. soil must remain in the United States. Only after the needs of the U.S. are met may oil produced in the United States be sold on the foreign market. We need a network of fueling stations to sell Compressed Natural Gas (CNG). Independent auditing firms should monitor cost/price ratios for the oil and natural gas companies, each fiscal quarter, to prevent price gouging.
Alternative energy power generation facilities must be developed. They should conform to the topography of the land: wind turbines in the plain states, wave turbines on the coasts, and solar in the southwest.
