We're even predicted to be the world's #1 oil producer by 2017. You shouldn't let statistics that have nothing to do with the US energy industry cause you to doubt the US energy industry. Thirst for energy can't be used as a reason to doubt industrial output. Our imports aren't our industry. Don't let the Republican party talking points fool you. Net imports have decreased every year since 2005.
The US energy industry is on a tear so strong, we're widely predicted to become a net exporter of energy in our lifetime for the first time ever!
