American Energy:
The Master Resource

Take a moment to think about what powers your life. Almost everything that you touch on a daily basis comes from petroleum-based products, from inexpensive, durable clothing to sterile medical devices to the fertilizer that produces abundant food that keeps our world fed.

America is a leading global producer of oil, gas, coal, and nuclear energy. And as a world leader in environmental quality, we are uniquely positioned to promote human flourishing and fight poverty in our communities and around the world.
