    The game seems to think it is because biofuel plants cost twice as much as to build as any other resource increasing improvement. It is what more directly affects your fleet. Especially with damage to repair. Lacking science or metal prevents you from getting new tech and wonders but lacking energy for repairs makes your existing ships useless.
    So energy is likely the most valuable, but is it twice as valuable as other resources, or less than that?

    Basically, yes. Energy gets you upgrade and new ships, and ships win the game.

    Everything else is just there to boost your energy production (food, metals spent on improvements)
    or on giving you more bang for your buck (metals on wonders, science).

    In the early game I tend to sell a lot of my resources and buy energy, this only stops being efficient once the trading rate drops to something pathetic.
