Public lands are the proven repositories of oil, natural gas, coal and other energy resources. American energy development on public lands facilitates domestic energy production, generates revenue for both the nation and local communities, and increases jobs in the energy sector.
Energy keeps energy prices low for American families and businesses and generates revenue for important conservation projects.
Learn how Americans who produce the energy that powers our nation are benefiting from last year’s increase in energy production.
