U.S. OIL & GAS BENEFIT
API wrote, U.S. consumers have continued to take advantage of America's energy revolution and affordable gas prices as we head into the fall season, said API Chief Economist Erica Bowman on a conference call with journalists.
"Throughout the summer, motorists have continued to benefit from America's energy renaissance with relief at the pump and in their homes," said Bowman. "World-leading U.S. production has translated into lower energy costs for individual Americans and families. This is a winning scenario for American consumers."
U.S. production is a clear factor in lower global crude prices, which has translated into lower energy costs for individual Americans and families. Year-over-year U.S. gasoline prices have declined by almost 50 cents per gallon, due in large part to the decline in the price of crude oil. Lower prices at the pump allowed drivers to save an average of more than $550 in 2015. The first half of 2016 has shown crude oil prices to be 25 percent less than the first half of 2015.
"Additionally, increased use of natural gas has helped drive U.S. carbon dioxide emissions to near 20-year lows while energy use and production have increased," said Bowman. "Looking ahead to November and before the debates this fall, no time is better to remind candidates about the importance of the American energy renaissance for U.S. consumers, families, the nation's economy and U.S. energy security."
The United States' energy-related emissions in 2015 were 12 percent lower than they were in 2005, even though the U.S. economy was 15 percent larger last year than it was a decade earlier.

U.S. EIA - In December 2018, U.S. shale and tight plays produced about 65 billion cubic feet per day (Bcf/d) of natural gas (70% of total U.S. dry gas production) and about 7 million barrels per day (b/d) of crude oil (60% of total U.S. oil production). A decade ago, in December 2008, shale gas and tight oil accounted for 16% of total U.S. gas production and about 12% of U.S. total crude oil production.
