Declines in energy consumption because of substantial improvements in efficiency and surging production of natural gas, oil, and renewable energy have brought the United States to the brink of energy independence. What are the economic implications of these developments? What are the implications for gasoline and electricity prices? And how might these developments affect climate change? Join RAND to learn more about shifts in U.S. energy markets and the implications of energy independence for the United States.
