As a politically conservative citizen, the solution to addressing the rapidly expanding energy debacle rests in trusting the free market to offset government involvement in the matter.   As we continue to expand on drilling for oil domestically, the nation should not ignore the potential in utilizing other available resources like natural gas.  In recent years, we have become less dependent on foreign oil and continue to expand the use of alternative energy sources.  Additional cuts on government-mandated regulations on certain energy sources and scaling back of taxes surrounding those fields will foster continued efficiency and safety for alternative energy sources.  Further exploration by the federal government in the fields of carbon capture technology will serve to expand the amount of solutions for alternative energy used by the United States.
