US President Barack Obama (R) and Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney (L) participate in the second presidential debate, the only held in a townhall format, at the David Mack Center at Hofstra University in Hempstead, New York, October 16, 2012, moderated by CNN's Candy Crowley.

During last night's debate, President Barack Obama and challenger Mitt Romney had plenty of heated exchanges: tax policy, jobs, Libya.

But perhaps more than anything else, sabers rattled the loudest over energy: wind power, clean coal, oil drillng and — of course — gas prices.
