Social Studies/English

My social studies class is discussing the energy issues in the world today. I have to write an essay about an energy issue and include the two opposing sides viewpoints. The issue I would like to write about is the United States dependence on foreign oils. Can anyone help me in finding information or news articles on this debate?
