In his Saturday letter ā€œEnergy mandates should be reviewed,ā€ Sam Randazzo of Industrial Energy Users-Ohio made a lot of
claims about how bad the energy-efficiency targets are that the Ohio legislature enacted in 2008. Most of his claims were
untrue.

cost?

Who has the oil? Who uses the oil?

“The United States consumes more than 20,000,000 barrels of oil per day but has less than 2 percent of the world’s remaining oil."
