API President and CEO Jack Gerard’s annual State of American Energy address put surging U.S. oil and natural gas production into context, saying that it has created a generational opportunity to secure this country’s energy future – an opportunity that would have been unimaginable just a few years ago. Gerard:
“Our future is ultimately of our own design. … We will decide if America continues its march toward global energy leadership – a once-in-a-generation choice – or remains content to play a supporting role in the global energy market. We can erase what for decades has been America’s greatest economic vulnerability – our dependence on energy sources from other continents, particularly from less stable and friendly nations – and fundamentally alter the geopolitical landscape for decades to come, all while providing a much needed boost to our economy. But only if we get our energy policy right.”

With the 113th Congress about to convene and President Obama preparing to launch his second term, America’s oil and natural gas industry is ready to take a leading role in boosting the nation’s economy – largely through investments stemming from increased development of domestic oil and natural gas.

Policies have consequences – in the graphic below from API’s 2012 State of American Energy report, the consequences of the 2010 Gulf deepwater drilling moratorium are manifest: more than $21 billion in investment dollars lost and the departure of drilling equipment to other, more hospitable, venues.

Will Americans vote energy in 2012? We think they should, and API President and CEO Jack Gerard made a compelling argument for it yesterday at the second State of American Energy event in Washington, D.C.
Gerard’s speech was both an appeal and a signal. The appeal: America’s oil and natural gas industry believes there’s never been a better time for a fact-based debate on energy that focuses on ways to help make this country more energy self-reliant and more secure. The signal: API’s new Vote 4 Energy campaign is under way, designed to persuade American voters to be energy-issue voters in this election year.

Challenge: Getting more Americans to see themselves as energy-issue voters in 2012.
Solution: API’s Vote 4 Energy campaign, launched today at the second State of American Energy event at Washington, D.C.’s Newseum.
In a keynote speech President and CEO Jack Gerard framed the energy-related issues upon which API hopes to engage Americans with the new informational campaign:
- America as an energy-rich nation.
- America’s oil and natural gas industry as a tremendous catalyst for job creation, economic growth and energy production.
- Energy as key to America’s future security.
