What do Michael Phelps and solar power have in common? (And no – the answer isn’t that solar was the secret behind that high-tech suit he raced to 8 gold medals.) Check out the latest post on the Oil & Gas Investor‘s fascinating Oil Rules blog for the answer from our very own Claire.

And in case you missed it – here’s a link to Oil Rules’ tour through the Wiess Energy Hall with Claire. Wondering why gas is $4 a gallon?
