Washington, D.C. – Following remarks by President Donald Trump in Midland, TX, today on the economic benefits seen by American families, farmers and small businesses from expanded domestic energy production and pipeline infrastructure, Consumer Energy Alliance (CEA) Federal Affairs Advisor Michael Zehr released the following statement:

“We applaud the Administration’s continued efforts to promote domestic production of both traditional and renewable energy. As the President noted today, expanded domestic production of oil and gas has benefited families, farmers and small businesses across the country. Continued, responsible development of our domestic resources and pipeline infrastructure will provide much-needed economic opportunities and jobs for Americans as we recover from the effects of the global COVID-19 pandemic.”

“The United States is not only one of the largest producers of oil and gas in the world, but also one of the most efficient and environmentally sound producers. For our economy to prosper and environment to improve, U.S. leadership in oil and gas production is absolutely essential.”
