Young, telegenic and Hispanic, Marco Rubio was talked about as a future presidential candidate within days of his election to the Senate in 2010. That buzz has died down over the past four years, as have Rubio’s ties to the tea party movement, but his entry into the 2016 race for the White House puts him into the top tier of Republican contenders.
Industry representatives and key lawmakers plan market studies, polls of Americans’ views and incremental moves on exports to sway public opinion in favor of allowing crude oil exports.
While industry seeks to move forward with nuclear technology, the Energy Department has been reluctant to embrace what it sees as another potential boondoggle.
In a world of low oil prices and cheap natural gas, the prospects of developing new nuclear technology seem to remain ever in the future, beyond market and regulatory barriers.
While many observers have praised Mexico’s move to privatize its energy sector, not everyone has embraced the changes.
While pressure to expedite U.S. government approval of liquefied natural gas exports continues, capacity to send natural gas to Mexico just expanded.
The EPA’s proposed ozone restrictions would affect about a dozen states if the agency adopts the most modest end of the range it’s considering and extend to more than 30 states if it opts for the more stringent requirements.
While Asian markets for liquefied natural gas are expected to grow, with increased shipments to Southeast Asia and India, future demand in China is highly variable, according to market analysts.
Some members of Congress continue to push for increased exports of liquefied natural gas, trying to make a simplified narrative out of complex market factors.

Congressional efforts to keep gasoline prices low are missing the big picture, says the head of the International Energy Agency.
While fossil fuel production from federal lands and waters has been decreasing overall, oil production from American Indian lands has tripled in recent years. That increase is largely due to hydrofracturing on the Fort Berthold Indian Reservation, which lays on the oil-rich Bakken shale formation in the upper Midwest, the Energy Information Administration reported last month.
While North Dakota takes steps to limit the volume of natural gas that is being burned off, or “flared,” in its rapidly expanding oil fields, the problem, which has caught the attention of Congress, is far worse on the state’s American Indian land — where regulation is more difficult.
On July 16, 1979, the earthen dam at the southern holding pond, or cell, of the United Nuclear Corporation’s uranium mill in New Mexico failed, sending tons of contaminated mine tailings and millions of gallons of acidic liquid into an adjoining arroyo and down the Puerco River.
Much of the uranium for Cold War weapons and the nation’s once-burgeoning nuclear power industry was mined on or near Navajo land in Arizona and New Mexico, and it left behind contamination.
European countries seeking to ease their dependence on Russian natural gas may discover that their salvation lies deep beneath their native soil.
The debate about lifting 1970s restrictions on crude oil exports has renewed another old fight over a 1920 maritime law known as the Jones Act.
