Host Alex Chadwick tackles one of the most important energy questions facing America: Are we running out of oil? It’s not an easy question to answer and, in an effort to understand what’s at stake, Alex travels to some of the country’s most important petroleum exploration sites. What is oil? How can you find it? How is it extracted, refined, transported and utilized? Could we get along without it? What goes into pricing a gallon of gas at the pump? These are some of the issues Alex will report on in “The Hunt for Oil”, the second in his new occasional series BURN: An Energy Journal.
