West Virginia

“We are at a crossroads where elected leaders throughout the state have a unique chance to support a balanced, responsible energy policy that satisfies the needs of all West Virginians. CEA’s Campaign for America’s Energy will actively engage policymakers so they realize the opportunity West Virginia’s energy resources provide and how our energy needs can be met while also protecting the environment.”

– Greg Kozera, Director of Marketing at Shale Crescent

The average price of gasoline in West Virginia is higher than the national average, leaving a big impact on the roughly 18% of West Virginians who live in poverty. With West Virginians paying in excess of $3,900 per year on energy expenses an individual in the state who is living at the poverty line is spending 33% of their income on energy.
