The U.S. Energy Information Administration’s (EIA) (www.eia.gov) monthly energy review reported that total U.S. energy production rose to 91% of domestic energy consumption in 2015. That means an energy production increase has occurred for six straight years for the U.S. market, according to EIA reports.

"Liquid fuels production drove the increase, with an 8% increase for crude oil and a 9% increase for natural gas plant liquids," said EIA officials in a press release. "Natural gas production also increased 5%. These gains more than offset a 10% decline in coal production."
