The United States has seen a drastic change over the past few decades in terms of its oil industry. In the past, America was a leading oil exporter and one of the world’s major energy producers. Today, however, it is the world’s largest importer of oil. This dramatic shift has been driven by numerous economic and sociological forces that have had a profound impact on our society – and few seem to understand what has caused this massive transition.
In an effort to educate Americans about how their dependence on foreign oil emerged, Gashole – an eye-opening documentary narrated by Peter Gallagher – takes viewers on an investigative journey to uncover the secrets that big oil companies don’t want you to know. The film explores potential solutions to weaning ourselves off foreign fossil fuels, from unearthing buried technology that could increase gas mileage dramatically to evaluating alternative fuels that are already available today. It also features interviews with Congressional leaders from both sides of the aisle, representatives from the US Department of Energy, alternative fuel producers and consumers (including actor Joshua Jackson), economists and psychologists who weigh in with their own perspectives on why Americans are so resistant to alternatives despite their clear benefits.
This is a must-see for anyone who purchases gas! Not only will Gashole shed light on why we’ve become so heavily reliant on foreign sources of energy but it will also provide valuable insight into potential ways we can reduce our reliance on these costly fossil fuels while still maintaining our standard of living. It will also give us a better understanding of how we can take control of our lives by taking action toward more sustainable practices that will benefit future generations as well. So if you want to be part of the solution instead of part of the problem, watch Gashole!
