Today the U.S. relies far more heavily on imported energy than it ever did before. The Nation still lacks a focal point for dealing with energy problems and a coherent set of energy policies. GAO identifies eight critical national energy issues it believes require the attention of the Congress and the public in the years ahead. For each, questions requiring analysis are summarized and GAO's ongoing and planned work discussed. GAO is convinced that a concerted national effort is needed to evolve an energy policy that will stand the severe tests facing the U.S. in the remainder of this century and hopes its report will contribute to increased understanding of the Nation's energy problems.
