Pennsylvania continues to play a leading role in America’s energy revolution. Through ingenuity, entrepreneurship and cutting-edge technologies, as well as hard work and grit, this revolution is dramatically reducing America’s dependence on foreign energy sources. At the same time, families and small businesses are realizing huge savings at the pump as well as in home-heating and electricity bills.
Without a doubt, natural-gas development directly benefits consumers throughout the commonwealth. Pennsylvania families and small businesses are realizing year-over-year winter energy savings of nearly 26 percent, and consumer natural-gas rates have plummeted more than 50 percent since 2008.
