With Halloween nearly upon us, just about everyone’s got a set of stencils for turning pumpkins into fantastic jack-o-lanterns. The U.S. Energy Department’s collection of energy-themed stencils is terrific, but lacks patterns for oil and natural gas. Considering that oil and gas supply 65 percent of the energy Americans use today and are projected to furnish 67 percent of our energy in 2040, that got us to thinking: “Hey, without oil and natural gas, there wouldn’t be pumpkins to carve!”

Our ears perked up near the end of  when coal utility employee and instant celebrity Ken Bone asked Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump how their respective energy policies would meet the country’s energy needs while also protecting the environment and minimizing negative impacts on key job sectors.

Idaho illustrates once again the all-of-the-above nature of American energy. The U.S. is the world’s leading producer of oil and natural gas, and oil and gas anchor the energy needs of the national economy and state economies. At the same time, other energy sources are important contributors in the daily effort to supply Americans with the power and fuels they need.

Like a number of states, Utah’s oil production has seen significant growth recently, doubling over the past decade while tying an all-time high in 2014. The state’s marketed natural gas production has grown about 60 percent since 2002. Meanwhile, the state also is home to vast deposits of oil shale – kerogen-rich rock that releases oil when heated – that could be the largest in the world.
