The United States of America is standing at the threshold of abundant reserves of natural gas. Recent estimates have indicated the supply is double the previous projections in recoverable natural gas deposits. Simply put, Americans can happily cruise the highways for 200 years on current supplies. As new techniques are used to extract these resources our supply of CNG increases at a rate of just over 20% annually. Innovations in resource recovery provide jobs here in America.
Oil accounts for nearly 40% of all energy used in the United States. The majority of our nation’s oil is imported from other countries, many of them unfriendly to the USA. With this in mind, it makes sense to take advantage of the resources within our National boundaries.
Shale basins discovered in more than twenty states in the U.S. have recoverable natural gas that can power us into the future. These discoveries can provide jobs in Texas, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Louisiana, Wyoming, Montana, Colorado, New Mexico, West Virginia, North Dakota, Pennsylvania, New York and Michigan. The pursuit of CNG production is necessary to a healthy economy and a bright future for America.
…it’s apparent that we can do more right here at home.
