A New Oil Boom The U.S. is experiencing an oil boom. The same shale that produced new reserves of natural gas also holds enough oil that energy experts think the U.S. will overtake Saudi Arabia as the world's leading petroleum producer in less than ten years. Join host Mike McIntyre as we explore the science and the economics behind a boom that would have been unthinkable a decade ago. We'll find out if it might lead us closer to the elusive goal of energy independence and maybe even to the days of cheaper gasoline.
