In the following video, Motley Fool energy contributors Tyler Crowe and Aimee Duffy discuss two conflicting opinions about where the U.S. oil industry is headed at the moment.

Who will end up being correct? Tyler tells investors what to watch in order to know how the future of U.S. oil will play out.

Domestic oil and gas service companies have taken a hit due to a slowdown in the natural gas drilling boom of the last couple of years.
