When it comes to future reliable oil supplies, Canadażs oil sands will likely account for a greater share of U.S. oil imports. In 2008 oil sands accounted for 46% of Canadażs total oil production and oil sands production is increasing as conventional oil production declines. Since 2004, when a substantial portion of Canadażs oil sands were deemed economic, Canada has ranked second behind Saudi Arabia in oil reserves. As oil sands production in Canada is predicted to increase to 2.8 million barrels per day by 2015, environ. issues are a cause for concern. Contents of this report: (1) Intro.;

The April 20, 2010, explosion of the Deepwater Horizon offshore drilling rig led to the largest oil spill in U.S. waters. It is estimated that the deepwater well ultimately released (over 84 days) over 200 million gallons of crude oil. Although decreasing amounts of oil were observed on the ocean surface following the wellżs containment on July 15, 2010, oil spill response officials and researchers have found oil in other places. A pressing question is where did the oil go? Contents of this report: (1) Intro.; (2) Factors that Impact an Oil Spillżs Fate; (3) The Federal Governmentżs Oil Bud

Despite common perceptions that there is a direct cause and effect relationship between changes in the international exchange value of the dollar and the price of oil, an analysis of data during recent periods indicates that changes in the price of oil are driven by changes in the demand for oil that is different from the supply of oil, rather than changes in the value of the dollar.

Federal interest in oil shale dates back to the early 20th century, when the Naval Petroleum and Oil Shale Reserves were set aside. Commercial interest followed during the 1960s. After a second oil embargo in the 1970s, Congress created a synthetic fuels program to stimulate large-scale commercial development of oil shale. Commercially backed oil shale projects ended in the early 1980s when oil prices began declining. High oil prices have revived the interest in oil shale.

Empirical evidence suggests that oil price increases have a negative effect on spending whereas oil price declines have no effect. The estimated negative effect of an oil price increase on spending is larger if we focus on oil price increases that occur after a period of stable oil prices (net oil price increases), or if spending includes durables, the latter suggesting the possible negative influence of energy prices on the purchase of big-ticket consumption goods. Furthermore, the estimated oil price coefficients in the consumption equation do not show parameter instability during the 1980s,
