The United States has double the amount of oil and three times the amount of natural gas than previously thought, stored deep under the states of North Dakota, South Dakota, and Montana, according to new data the Obama administration released Tuesday.

In announcing the new data in a conference call, Interior Secretary Sally Jewell also said the administration will release within weeks draft rules to regulate hydraulic fracturing, technology that has come under scrutiny for its environmental impact but that is essential to developing all of this energy.

“These world-class formations contain even more energy-resource potential than previously understood, which is important information as we continue to reduce our nation’s dependence on foreign sources of oil,” Jewell said in a statement.

NEW YORK, N.Y. - Oil rose more than five per cent this week, even with a decline on Friday, as traders concluded last week's dive to a low for the year was overdone.

The price of oil slipped Friday after a report showing that growth picked up in the U.S. economy last quarter, but not as much as expected. Benchmark West Texas Intermediate crude for June delivery fell 64 cents to US$93 a barrel on the New York Mercantile Exchange.

Still, oil rose $4.99 a barrel over the week, with the 5.6 per cent increase the largest weekly gain of the year.
