Ohio is among the nation’s top energy producing states, and residents recognize the industry’s essential role in driving America’s economic recovery and strengthening our national security. In fact, two-thirds of Ohio voters, including majorities of Democrats, Republicans and Independents, support ongoing access to homegrown natural gas and oil.

Energy development in the Ohio River Valley provides unique economic opportunities for the Appalachian region, while helping to reduce our nation’s dependence on foreign sources of oil.

Looking forward, the natural gas and oil industry will continue to lead at this critical moment – working to meet the world’s growing demand for affordable, reliable energy and supporting good-paying jobs, consumer savings and environmental progress, in Ohio and across America.
