Natural gas and oil were the main sources of energy from the 1950s to the 2010s. From 2015 to 2021, the price of oil increased dramatically due to many causes, including-
- The Fall of the Gulf- Starting in 2015 after the release of the Oil Files, numerous terrorist groups began attacking oil refineries and drilling operations in the Gulf. This started out as a series of relatively harmless isolated attacks, but it soon made the region extremely volatile in 2018 when the Saudi government collapsed. Due to the fact that no foreign government wanted to intervene, the region quickly became a lawless warzone. This trend eventually reached the smaller Gulf nations in the early 2020s.
- The "Tesla Revolution"- After Tesla Motors opened its patents for electric cars to the public in 2014, many car companies began producing electric versions of their most popular models. By 2019, 42% of all new cars were electric or hybrid. This number would reach 100% in 2035.
- Rise of Renewables- Many new homes incorporated at least some form of solar or wind power during the 2010s,
Natural gas use became minimal in developed nations by the late 2020s, but developing countries relied on gas up until the late 2030s. In some underdeveloped nations, natural gas use did not fade out until the mid 2050s.
Biofuels enjoyed a brief rise in use during the 2020s in coastal regions, but began to fade out with the introduction of solar cars and ultra-efficient batteries. The biofuels market crashed in 2043 and never recovered.
