Without energy production revolution, cost to consumers would have been higher

Houston – Consumer Energy Alliance President David Holt released the following statement today in response to Saturday’s drone attacks on crucial Saudi oil infrastructure:

“Let this unnecessary act of terrorism serve as a good example of why U.S.-produced energy is so critical to American families and businesses, and our international friends and allies.

“Global market prices, even with the trading surge on the news, remain reasonable in large part because the U.S. is producing more oil and natural gas than ever before. We are better able to shrug off these dangerous geopolitical gambits by our opponents.

“CEA asks all candidates who continue to blindly preach the so-called Green New Deal and its goal of abolishing traditional energy to remember that the U.S. is part of a wider world where oil and natural gas are still a crucial geopolitical currency – something our society is asking for more of, not less.

“We can and must have sensible energy solutions and continued environmental stewardship – and, in fact, the U.S. is actually showing the world that both can exist at the same time.

“Low energy prices support a stronger economy and our families, businesses and farmers. Harmful emissions continue to decline in the U.S. – and the U.S. continues to lead the world in greenhouse gas emission reductions.

“CEA has long held that energy and environmental policy should be non-partisan and that’s truer today than ever before. Candidates from both parties should seek thoughtful, bi-partisan ways to engage U.S. energy and continue the stewardship of our environment.“
