AUTO CENTRAL - March 3, 2011: Nearly 20 years ago, a young Daniel Yergin wrote "THE PRIZE: The Epic Quest for Oil, Money & Power." It's the true story of how the petroleum oil industry was founded and how it has become the chain that keeps us in bondage to gasoline. In 1993, Yergin's book became the basis for a dynamic multi-part television series of the same name.

As part of The Auto Channel's coverage of alternative fuels and energy sources we proudly make this video series available to our you in the hope that you will join us in our determination to end the oil industry's control of world politics and the economy.

The following video is a recent clip of Daniel Yergin talking about his newly revised edition of the book. To watch episodes of the original television series click PLAY on the windows below.
