The article presents information on the possible reduction of foreign oil dependency regarding the study by professor Daniel M Kammen. According to a study by Kammen and his colleagues at U.C. Berkeley's Renewable and Appropriate Energy Laboratory, the U.S. could end the need to import fossil fuels from the Persian Gulf region by 2020. These measures would deliver daily oil use savings of more than 22 percent, equivalent to the 6.3 million barrels a day America currently imports from the Persian Gulf.
