New technology, including a process called hydraulic fracturing, enables the tapping of natural gas sources in the previously cost-prohibitive U.S. regions of Appalachia, the Mid-Continent, the Gulf Coast, and in the Rocky Mountains.
U.S. natural gas reserves have increased 23 percent, mostly on the ability to access those new sources, with estimated reserves totaling 1,898 trillion cubic feet as of the end of 2010.

Oil shale does not actually contain oil, but a waxy oil precursor known as kerogen .
The U.S coal reserves stand at 275 billion tons, an amount that is greater than any other nation in the world capable of meeting domestic demand for more than 250 years.
