Natural gas isn't the only solution to America's energy needs – there won't be only one. But the responsible development of this safe, plentiful, affordable and environmentally responsible energy resource can do more than create jobs, improve living standards and drive economic growth here in the United States. It can contribute to a healthier environment and higher quality of life in America and throughout the rest of the world.
While there are many solutions that can help meet our energy needs into the future, natural gas and its benefits are available now. The vast supplies made available by new cutting-edge uses of technologies stand ready to fuel our country for several generations.
Natural gas is a safe and affordable fuel for heating and cooling our homes and cooking our food. It also has broad uses for businesses, manufacturing and power generation – where it represents the fastest and most cost-effective path to reducing our greenhouse gas emissions. What's more, the rising production is increasing U.S. competitiveness, promoting job growth and bolstering the economy with lower, more stable natural gas prices.
