Increases in U.S. oil and gas production have fueled American manufacturing, helping to create 1.4 million new, good-paying jobs while generating $121 billion in savings for U.S. businesses since 2009.  For more information about how affordable, abundant, and clean natural gas is impacting every state in the country, visit: https://empoweringamerica.org/state-facts/

TEA’s Declaration of Energy Independence represents a commitment to the following four principles that will help power America’s economy for everyone over the next century and beyond:

  • Affordable Energy for Our Families. From the jobs created to lower utility bills and cleaner air, affordable energy is fundamental to economic prosperity for all. It is a moral imperative to provide for families who are most vulnerable to increases in their energy budgets.
  • Clean Energy for Our Environment. We lead the world, by a wide margin, in cutting CO2 emissions.
    America’s natural gas is the fiscally-sound, reliable and environmentally responsible bridge to our energy future.
  • Abundant Energy for Our Future. Technology and exploration have guaranteed that America
    has a continuous 100-year supply of natural gas and the potential for even more.
  • Domestic Energy for Our Security. The use of domestic natural gas discovered, produced,
    and refined in the U.S. makes certain America is no longer dependent on rapidly changing
    global markets and unstable or hostile countries.
