ABSTRACT
The article presents various information related to energy independence and energy security. Energy independence is similar to the energy self-sufficiency concept of the U.S. which aims to supply all of its energy needs. It says that energy security is achieved when there is a reduced dependence on politically unstable sources such as Venezuela. The oil that the U.S. can produce reaches 1.9 billion barrels which account for one-fourth of what the country uses.
