ABSTRACT
The article reports on the results of a survey conducted by the American Petroleum Institute on the energy demand and supplies and the role of U.S. oil and natural gas companies. Over 25 percent of respondents were unsure about the largest supplier of oil to the U.S. Only 8 percent correctly noted that less than 15 percent of the U.S. oils come from the Persian Gulf countries. The public also underestimates the importance of fossil fuels in meeting global energy demand in the next 25 years.
