The article focuses on the projected higher energy prices in the U.S. wherein a 4 dollars per gallon gasoline in the summer of 2011 was expected. The factors influencing the increase in energy prices include the political unrest in oil producing regions including Middle East, the energy demand in developing economies, and environmental constraints on energy exploration. Moreover, installation of solar panels or geothermal systems could lessen the impact of increasing energy costs.
