Why We Must Celebrate America's Natural Gas Boom

As we celebrate the 4th of July holiday, America’s national security should be front of mind. As such, the energy freedoms that are made possible by domestic natural gas development deserve to be recognized and celebrated this Independence Day weekend.

Energy security has been a national priority for generations, and was brought to the forefront of policy discussions during the energy crises of the 1970s. Two years ago, thanks to the continued success of shale development, America achieved that elusive national security goal when the U.S. became a net energy exporter for the first time since the mid-1950s.
