We are having a shortage of fossil fuels.  This is why fuel costs are rising.

Energy use in the United States keeps increasing.


The United States contains only 5% of the world’s population, however we use more than 30% of the energy produced in the world today!


Scientist predict that in the past 5000 years we have used up almost all of the coal, oil and natural gas formed over a period of 500 million years.


We are running out!
