In the Energy in Communities pages, see profiles of seven communities across America that are growing and prospering, with abundant energy from natural gas and oil playing a significant role.
Message from API President and CEO Mike Sommers @mj_sommers
The benefits of the American energy revolution are felt from the smallest communities to the global stage.
Across our country, communities have felt the positive impact of the abundance of American energy. From decreased energy costs for families to increased investments in school systems and infrastructure, Americans benefit from the economic growth driven by the U.S. natural gas and oil industry.
The domestic energy revolution has strengthened small businesses in Colorado, expanded agricultural production in New Mexico and created opportunities for tradespeople in Pennsylvania.
Surprisingly, there are those who respond to this progress with opposition and pushback. They suggest that we retreat – by banning hydraulic fracturing, the technology most responsible for U.S. energy leadership and emissions reductions and by promoting policies that would cost our communities jobs and impact our national security.
On the following pages we outline how, together, we will meet the challenges ahead, for a stronger economy and cleaner future – by expanding partnerships, developing best-in-class standards, driving new technologies, and supporting smarter regulations that boost innovation.
This is energy progress, and we’re not done yet.
