Oil and Gas Today with Chris Faulkner Podcast #440

The oil and gas boom has served to significantly enhance the national security positioning of the United States, reducing the country’s dependence on unstable parts of the world, like the Middle East, and enhancing its ability to conduct effective negotiations with hostile nations such as Iran.

The energy boom will add fuel to the country’s economic revitalization, and the reduction of its dependence on energy imports will give it some measure of greater diplomatic freedom and influence. The huge boom in U.S. oil and gas production, combined with the country’s other enduring sources of military, economic, and cultural strength, should enhance U.S. global leadership in the years to come — but only if Washington protects the sources of this newfound strength at home and takes advantage of new opportunities to protect its enduring interests abroad.
