NPGA Urges Biden Administration to Prioritize American Energy

Bottom Line: NPGA urges the Biden Administration to support the security and prominence of American energy like propane.

NPGA joined the American Petroleum Institute (API) and other energy associations in a letter to President Joe Biden calling for action to support the production and infrastructure of domestic energy sources like propane.  Highlighting rising costs of all fuels coupled with overall inflation and an economy still recovering from the COVID-19 pandemic, the letter emphasized the need for the Biden Administration to reduce regulatory burdens that stifle domestic energy and policies that undermine the core of America’s energy independence.

Further, the crisis in Ukraine is impacting the cost of all fuels in Europe and in the United States.  Despite this additional stress, policymakers continue to hinder the oil and natural gas industry’s efforts to increase production and reestablish our nation’s energy independence, stability, and security. The U.S. Energy Information Administration expects that natural gas could provide 34 percent of U.S. primary energy demand in 2050, and the world’s energy use in 2040 will still depend on oil and natural gas. The world needs energy leadership, and the U.S. is positioned to reassume the role.
