Domestic Energy Source

Every month, Florida alone spends roughly $4 billion on foreign oil—and in the next ten years, the cost of our national addiction will reach $2 trillion. While 97% of the natural gas we use in the US comes from North America, recovering additional domestic natural gas resources and taking other steps to increase its use will create more jobs, increase national security and help keep more energy dollars home.
