Since the 1970s, the U.S. energy independence has been a transferable torch to be carried by different political leaders from different political parties. This torch has led the bearers, either the elected presidents or just those in the making, to bright outcomes by solidifying their success. The independence, though, has yet to be achieved.

Throughout the length of the long and winding road of the United States’ history of seeking an elusive energy independence, the only thing that has remained unchanged is the goal of reducing the imports of oil; all other parameters and drivers in this crusade have been revised, updated, supplemented or recycled.
