The Oil and Gas Sector in the Age of Energy Transition

Time:

Oil & Gas

As the U.S. and other Western nations try and transition to renewable energy it begs the question – what happens to the oil industry? The 2022 Inflation Reduction Act  incentivizes the private sector to move towards green energy. E-vehicles account for 1% of the total number of cars on U.S. roads in 2023, but are expectations of consumer adoption realistic with Ford and GM cutting back production and investment in EVs?. Many American consumers are turning towards renewable energy, but it is impossible to make a full transition to 100% renewable. In addition to that, oil and gas prices continue to rise, impacted by conflicts around the world. What is the future of oil and gas? Is it going away or more important than ever?
