US Energy Industry Rocks the Numbers!

American track and field star Carl Lewis

ConocoPhillips posted 7 Incredible Numbers From America's Energy Revolution on their LinkedIn page, and I commented:  The energy industry alone can help us get beyond this nagging economic "funk" and radically shift geopolitics in favor of the West.

To wit, last month the US surpassed Saudi Arabia as the world's largest oil and gas producer, currently at 12.1 million barrels of oil equivalent a day.  Analysts suggest that the US may be energy-independent by 2030.  

Moreover, a 2.1 million job creation impact is one thing.  But add $1200 to an average household, and Americans can appreciate the boost in very real, pragmatic ways.
