Power Past Politics

Basic Necessities – like energy – have become highly political. It doesn’t have to be this way. American energy is solving big challenges – from environmental progress to building and protecting communities to securing our nation.

AMERICA TODAY IS THE LEADING PRODUCER and refiner of natural gas and oil.
MORE THAN 10.3 MILLION JOBS are supported by natural gas and oil, which generate 1.3 trillion for the U.S. economy every year.
FOR EVERY DIRECT NATURAL GAS AND OIL JOB, an additional 2.7 jobs are supported elsewhere in the economy.
THE NATURAL GAS AND OIL INDUSTRY spends $70 million to the U.S. Treasury every single day.
BY 2035 THE NATURAL GAS AND OIL INDUSTRY could create more than 1.9 million new high-paying jobs.
FROM 1990 TO 2016, NATURAL GAS AND OIL invested more than $339 billion – $1,045 for every man, woman, and child in the U.S. – to improve air quality and support environmental programs.
