The People of America's Oil and Natural Gas Industry

The State of American Energy

When it comes to energy policy, the next president and members of the next Congress will play a critical role in shaping America’s 21st century energy renaissance, determining whether our nation will cement its position as a global energy leader. The energy policy conversation is about more than oil and natural gas development. It is about American competitiveness, international influence, national security and long-term economic strength and prosperity.

America is experiencing an energy revival. We are now defined by an abundance of energy resources rather than a scarcity of them. This affords us the opportunity to think in terms of promise and potential. API’s 2015 State of American Energy provides the oil and natural gas industry’s perspective on policies and issues impacting America’s energy future. The right public policies can fuel America’s economic revival and improve our energy security for future generations through the safe and responsible production, refining, and transportation of our country’s oil and natural gas resources. We are committed to working with communities and policymakers to make these wise choices.
