The American Petroleum Institute (API) released a report touting the economic benefits of the oil and gas industry. There are a lot of figures in the report. Some that will likely make policymakers set up and listen are
- The oil and gas industry supports 9.2 million American jobs, and
- The average refinery worker makes $94,500 annually (I have to rethink my career choices).
This seems to be part of a larger plan to improve the industry’s image. You probably recall seeing lot of advertisements about the benefits of oil and natural gas during the last election cycle.
