Bi-fuel is the future of the oil and gas industries because it represents a cheaper, cleaner means of powering engines and generators. Ignoring this trend by sticking with straight diesel or natural gas is turning a blind eye to the future of the industry. Here’s why you need to invest in this technology now.

True or False – The World’s Largest Oil Producer is the U.S.

Most folks at first blush will likely think it's false that the U.S. is the largest oil producer now. Saudi Arabia has long held the seat, as well as the combined market power of OPEC. However, times have changed, and so have the methods of how oil is found and secured from underground. The days of straight drilling after testing and finding large deposits horizontally under firm ground are long over. Now, oil harvesting occurs from angular ocean drilling to sideways harvesting using the controversial fracking methods. All of these combined have changed the oil market significantly. Much of the boost that caused the market change was due to the high oil prices we've seen in the last few years. The influx of funding has allowed domestic U.S. companies to come up with new and amazing technology in the business of petroleum mining. Now that these tools are understood and proven, even with the lower of prices by market manipulation supply flooding, they are going to remain in use perman

Fascinating graphic: top sources and uses of energy in the USA in 2014

When most people are asked about where energy comes from, the most obvious sources come to mind first. Electrical power comes from a nearby generator plant, and gasoline comes from imported oil. These are the two most common sources of energy most of us know about and think we know where they are generated. However, these two categories do not make up all the energy used in the U.S. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, or E.P.A., put together a very fascinating visual display of how energy is brought into the country and how it is consumed performing various functions. What at first looks like a big green log with split ends is really an informative energy flow map of all the big areas of energy production and consumption. Everytime I look at it, I learn something new. And many common assumptions are very different from reality. For example, foreign oil only represents a little over 23 percent of energy resources available to Americans. And electrical energy generally come
