If Congress recognizes the mistakes of the past; it should take advantage of the tax reform bill to provide the U.S. with a very different energy future. The domestic petroleum industry could retain its flexibility and grow, if the anti-oil bias were eliminated from the tax code and market-hampering regulations repealed. Should this happen, the benefits of inexpensive energy could be maintained for decades.
