SUMMORY
There has been a huge increase in the need for energy worldwide for years, because of industrial developments and the population growth. As a result, there is a shortage of electricity and fuel causing the inflation of energy cost to go higher and higher. Police are directing traffic at gas stations, while angry frustrated people spend hours in line for gas. High inflation cost has forced people to use less fuel, causing the demand and cost to go down, along with funding for alternative fuel technology. In 2012 both presidential candidates assured the country that energy independence was just around the corner, and President Obama’s Energy Security Trust proposal is a sign of change in energy production and energy innovation. The need for petroleum outweighs the cost because transportation is almost entirely dependent upon petroleum. The solution is to find a way to substitute different fuels for petroleum transportation.
The energy crisis has driven a wave of advancements in battery technology. Batteries deliver electricity through a closed-energy system. We can re-charge and re-use them for long periods of time in small appliances, cars, and machinery in remote locations. A British manufacturer of electric cars claims that by the year 2014, they will have a car capable of travelling up to 1,000 miles on one a single battery charge. Although the oil industry has found ways to recover large amounts of oil from the earth, it doesn’t make much difference if we can’t afford to buy it. The real energy crisis may be the time consuming process of
