1* Does the United States do enough to develop its own gas and oil resources?
2* Is the United States doing enough to explore alternative sources of energy?
3* Should the federal government pass laws requiring oil companies to use a significant portion of their profits searching for alternative sources of energy?
4* Who is more likely to solve the nation's energy problems-private companies or a government research program?
5* Which is the better approach to an energy policy—reducing demand by reducing the amount of gas and oil that we consume? Or increasing the supply of oil by finding more sources of gas and energy?
