In many ways, the truest measure of U.S. energy is America itself – the country’s economic health and its security in the world, the individual prosperity of its citizens and the nation's ability to meet significant challenges. Energy, led by natural gas and oil, is driving progress in all of these areas. No less important is the role abundant, secure energy plays in expanding concepts of what's possible, what Americans can achieve.
These themes were highlighted at the State of American Energy event in Washington, D.C., where API’s annual report, “America’s Generation Energy,” was released. API President and CEO Mike Sommers said this Generation Energy – the generation of Americans with unprecedented opportunity to dream and achieve thanks to plentiful natural gas and oil – is ready to achieve big things.

Pipelines play a vital role in delivering the energy American families and businesses need every day. The nation's more than 212,000 miles of liquid pipelines and over 300,000 miles of natural gas pipelines are among the safest and most efficient means of moving petroleum products to consumers. And, because most are buried, they are largely unseen.
The natural gas and oil industry recognizes the integral nature of pipeline infrastructure and is committed to advancing pipeline safety to protect communities and the environment.

Certainly, Jimmie Pavelock knows what it means to serve in the community. So do members of the natural gas and oil industry. The measure of an industry or a business sector’s commitment to local communities is seen in what they do – as a corporation, or as individuals.As an industry, we recognize that strengthening the communities in which we operate – and where our employees live and raise their families alongside their neighbors – is about protecting them, providing opportunity for growth and prosperity and in lending a helping hand. It’s about contributing to the greater good.
