display_description About 66 percent of electricity in the United States is produced from burning fossil fuels. The most important fossil fuels are oil, coal, and natural gas which are generally less expensive than other energy sources. However, burning these types of fuels emit gases that cause pollution and contribute to global warming. Another problem in using fossil fuels is that much of it is located in politically unstable parts of the world so the United States may not always have access to them.
