The Obama Administration recently released this report, which outlines the United States' path towards better energy security. This report comes at a time when the price of crude oil is at its highest point since 2003. Which has a significant effect on the U.S. economy, considering that transportation is the second costliest expense for most American households. Main goals laid out in the report include: Expand Safe and Responsible Domestic Oil and Gas Development and Production. Lead the World Toward Safer and More Secure Energy Supplies. Reduce Consumers Costs at the Pump with More Efficient Cars and Trucks. Cut Energy Bills with More Efficient Homes and Buildings. Harness America's Clean Energy Potential so that 80 percent of electricity will come from clean energy sources by 2035. Win the future through Clean Energy Research and Development. Lead by Example so that the Federal Government models best practices and clean energy technologies.
