    All Things Considered New Energy Geopolitics For years, the dominant geopolitical story in the energy world has been the grip that Saudi Arabia and other OPEC members have had over the United States and its Western allies. But recently there's been a significant shift in petro-power relations. OPEC's clout is declining due to a boom in energy production in other areas of the world, especially the Western Hemisphere.

The show reviews new developments in energy geopolitics.
