Summer Fun, Fueled by American Energy
As we prepare to head into the heart of summer, most everyday Americans are already bracing for the energy issues that come with the season. Gasoline prices start to tick up as families get in the car for their summer vacations. And, electricity bills climb as the weather gets hot and we crank up the air conditioning.
We at TEA frequently remind you just how important American energy sources like natural gas and oil are to keeping those costs down and our lives moving. But, there are also many other ways that American petroleum products keep us safe and active during the summer months.
Whether it’s the sunglasses and sunscreen you wear to protect yourself, the propane you use to cook up your July 4 BBQ, or the toys your kids take to the beach or pool, so much of our summer is fueled by products derived from American oil and natural gas. In fact, over 6,000 everyday products and high-tech devices are possible because of these resources.
The truth is, we can only experience the full potential of the American summer thanks to affordable and reliable energy. We must defend our energy affordability and security so the simple pleasures of the summertime don’t become a thing of the past.
