API Market Development Executive Director Marty Durbin has welcomed new data by the Energy Information Administration (EIA) showing that due to natural gas, carbon dioxide emissions for energy use dropped to 25 year lows in the first half of 2016.

“Today’s report is another example of the great benefits that come from clean burning natural gas,” said Durbin. “The increased use of natural gas has reduced carbon emissions, lowered costs to American consumers, and increased our nation’s manufacturing competitiveness. Moving forward, we must embrace our nation’s leadership so American consumers, workers, and the environment continue to benefit from America’s energy renaissance.”

Wednesday’s announcement comes just days after the EIA released data showing that American consumers are paying less in electricity costs due to abundant natural gas and after the White House issued a report showing that US-based manufacturers have a competitive advantage thanks to natural gas.
