Our elected officials should be focused on responsible energy policies. Unfortunately, our administration has lost sight of what is truly important. Back in 2005, the EPA, Bush administration and Congress mandated that our gasoline must contain ten percent ethanol. This was based on a false premise. Our esteemed leaders thought we would be facing severe oil and gas shortages and sky-high costs for decades to come. As we now know, this has not occurred. In fact, we have a glut of oil and natural gas and record-breaking low prices at the pump. We already know that ethanol can cause severe…

As part of a camp (unit) in Clinton County, our group of property owners leases out mineral rights to gas companies. There is one property that is producing and the unit is receiving royalty checks. We are all hoping the market will pick up again and the wells on the other parcels will start producing as well. I am, of course, against any severance tax on the natural gas wells on many levels. Last year, I was thrilled to hear that the state house voted down the last round of budget talks that involved the severance tax. If you are…

Energy Citizens sure know how to get things done! I am thrilled that we were instrumental in holding Gov. Wolf at bay last fall as he pounded his fists to get a severance tax from the natural gas wells here in Pennsylvania. He needs to fill some hefty budget gaps, but risks losing an entire industry to close those gaps instead of cutting spending. Our elected officials listened and we will continue to hold their feet to the fire! The fight to ensure energy and infrastructure development in the U.S. never ends. Let’s stay vigilant and let our officials know…

Our energy future is important on so many levels. Here in Pennsylvania we have a lot to be thankful for. We just need to get our elected officials on board so they can see the bigger picture and understand how important energy development is to our state and to the country. The only way we will get our country back on the right track is if we all work together and support responsible energy development. Energy Citizens has been great in helping me stay informed on current issues. If enough of us are working together for this cause, I know…

As most economists agree, the only way to grow our economy is through energy production and infrastructure development. We need to let the industry breathe and grow, and stop overtaxing and over regulating it. Some of our lawmakers in Pennsylvania get it: we need to keep the natural gas companies. They proved this last year when they doggedly fought against the severance tax that Gov. Wolf so persistently proposed to help close his budget gaps. The fact is our entire country needs energy development and infrastructure development so we can progress. The energy industry alone could turn this state and…

I have long been a huge proponent of American energy independence and I am thrilled that Pennsylvania sits on such a huge swath of shale. This country has an amazing bounty of oil and natural gas ready for extraction and refining. Therefore, there is no reason for us to rely on foreign energy – unless it is part of a well-thought-out trade agreement with allies. Not only does oil and natural gas extraction create thousands of jobs for our citizens, energy infrastructure creates even more. We just received great news that a large Texas gas company recently got approval to…

Energy development in Pennsylvania has been a passion of mine for many years. We are blessed to live on an enormous shale formation with unlimited natural gas right below our feet. But that does not mean that all counties that sit on the Marcellus shell can drill. The Delaware River Basin Commission enacted a fracking moratorium years ago in Wayne and Pike counties. Residents have been unsuccessful in getting that lifted. As a local elected official, I have the luxury of meeting many movers and shakers in this great state. But that does not mean that all citizens do not…

Being involved in the energy industry in Texas, I understand the impact of our energy industry.  I have been a Chemical Engineer for 38 years and a real proponent of pro-energy issues. It is important for people to speak out on behalf of the issues that affect the industry. I have used the information and resources Energy Citizens has provided in the past and will continue to do so in the future. We all have to speak out for the cause of energy's future.

As an Energy Citizen, I feel privileged to do my part in growing energy development here in Pennsylvania and across the country. So many folks complain that their voices are never heard – yet Energy Citizens is a wonderful channel for gas and oil professionals, state lawmakers, and other concerned citizens. We were instrumental in getting the severance tax option removed from the budget talks last fall. Let your friends and family know about energycitizens.org. It is the first step in taking action which is vital to this country in the next few years. Energy will shape our economic future…
