Energy and Fuel Savings
Robust natural gas and oil production in the United States is saving American families money every day. Today, the U.S. is the world’s largest producer of oil and natural gas, an unthinkable feat just a decade ago.
Thanks to increased oil and natural gas production from hydraulic fracturing and horizontal drilling, America’s drivers saved more than $550 on gasoline in 2015 according to the American Automobile Association (AAA). Since 2008, roughly the start of the energy renaissance in America, average annual energy costs per household have dropped by more than 14%.
America’s game-changing production increases would not have the same positive impact on consumers’ daily lives without pipeline infrastructure to deliver affordable, reliable energy to homes and businesses. Energy infrastructure is an often underappreciated component of the American energy revolution, yet it is essential to delivering its benefits to every state.
