98% of our oil used is in the transportation sector. It drives me nuts when I hear them talking and fail to make the distinction between energy used in home and industry with the transportation sector. If you want to reduce oil usage installing solar panels won't do it, but energy efficient cars will, and that's where we need to concentrate our efforts. We use 25% of the world's oil and we're sitting on 2% of the world's reserves so there isn't enough oil to power our selves, it's just an oil man's dream. Brazil has moved off oil to ethanol, and now exports oil for profit. The Republicans will never put the effort into getting us off of oil becasue they are in the pockets of big oil until it runs out. Bloom energy is working on a source of energy called the Bloombox and is now being used to power some plants in Silicon Valley, and it seem to be working well. This could be the answer to solar panels. The technology is advancing for energy usage and we must put more effort to getting energy efficient, and the fossils in DC must be ignored and voted out of office.
