Since the 90's people in both the public and private sector has stated America needs to have a Solid Energy Plan. One that gets us off the hook to importing oil from other countries and allows us to have a cleaner place to live. A plan that can make things efficient without taking such a huge chunk of money from peoples paycheck.

Going back to the first Oil Scare of the 70's and the attempt from American auto companies to supply efficient Pinto's, Mustangs, Camero's, etc., the US has had a Band Aid approach at best to how we deal with our Energy Consumption.

Here in the 21st century you find pure electric solutions, hybrid solutions, BioDiesel Solutions, a desire to go more Nuclear and the latest hot interest is to use our World largest deposits of Natural Gas to secure our independence in the form of CNG.

T. Boone Pickens who made his billions in Oil has been pushing his own agenda for the last 10 years of CNG (compressed Natural Gas). He also has had a vocal position on America's need for an energy independence plan. Now he proposes his thoughts on America's Strategic Petroleum Reserves.

Go to this link, watch his video and sound off on what you think of his stated position / proposition to what some feel is an important American cost, The Strategic Petroleum Reserve.


Video only is here:

Does what he say make sense for America?

      In today's society with not just the US, but World wide unemployement affecting everyone's quality of life, what could get at least the US to jump back into putting people to work and raise the life standard of the average worker?

      Forbes put out this great article by Stan Barton:
      The Surprising Obama Trade: Natural Gas
      To quote the story:
      "A policy to take advantage of the natural gas abundance will have a “New Deal” type influence on infrastructure construction and manufacturing, and it will provide cheap energy to fuel growth in many sectors. Cheaper than oil per BTU, natural gas would have long-range systemic benefits for inflation control, just as Internet technology created systemic improvement in productivity. This article makes the case why we think that President Obama will focus on centering the U.S. energy policy on natural gas, and how it will help stocks that are in the sweet spots: natural gas exploration, well services, pipelines, fueling stations, vehicles and infrastructure."

      So read the complete article and then sound off on whether you agree or disagree and why. Is this the proper step for America to take in moving off oil to something better over the next 200 years as we perfect electric transportation?
      Please remember this is not to be political agenda driven, but from a business standpoint and what could help create jobs and our nation grow in a time of world wide depression.
