In this Energy and Environment Breakfast, ICF International welcomes one of the U.S. government's foremost experts on petroleum and a founding director from Columbia University for a discussion on issues related to the dramatic fall in world oil prices, which are at their lowest levels since 2007. Gasoline prices in the United States are below $2.50 per gallon.

Key discussion questions include:

  • How long will this rapid decline continue, when could prices rise again, and what does it all mean?
  • Will there be (much) less North American oil and gas production, forestalling our drive to energy independence?
  • How does industry make decisions with very uncertain policies: crude exports, pipelines, rail concerns?
  • Will natural gas markets tighten, and will new pipeline activity slow?
  • Do we still need the Keystone XL pipeline?
  • To what extent will there be slower adoption of fuel-efficient vehicles?
  • Where is unrest in the Middle East going and how will it affect global markets?
