From widespread fears about energy security, the debate in the United States in recent years has shifted to how the abundance of natural gas and significant new oil reserves are fundamentally altering the U.S. energy relationship with the world. North American energy independence is rapidly becoming a reality, with the United States now confident that it will be able to satisfy declining national demand for oil through a combination of domestic, Canadian, and Mexican supply, fuel efficiency measures, and a long-term shift from gasoline and diesel to natural gas-based fuel for transportation.

The recent surge in North American oil and natural gas is moving the balance of power in energy production from the Middle East to the West. Soon, Mexican energy reforms and newly accessible Arctic resources will add to this North American energy boom. U.S. energy infrastructure and policies must adapt to meet the energy revolution occuring in North America. At the same time, energy consumption is growing exponentially in Asia, raising new challenges and opportunities for East-West cooperation in international energy.
