API highlights data showing lowest carbon emissions from energy sector in 25 years
The American Petroleum Institute (API) recently showcased new data from Energy Information Administration (EIA), showing that the first half of 2016 saw carbon dioxide emissions from energy use drop to their lowest levels in 25 years.
 
“Today’s report is another example of the great benefits that come from clean-burning natural gas,” API Market Development Executive Director Marty Durbin said. “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.”
 
API also highlighted how the data fits in with other recently released reports. Days before the carbon dioxide emissions data set was released, the EIA released figures on electricity costs for American users that show prices are going down thanks to natural gas.

Additionally, the White House recently released a report on U.S.-based manufacturers that shows natural gas giving them a competitive advantage.
