A new report from Texans for Natural Gas highlights the many benefits of the Texas oil and gas industry.
One key piece of the report discussed the role natural gas has played in San Antonio:
“46 percent of San Antonio’s electricity comes from low-carbon natural gas. Thanks to affordable natural gas, San Antonio residents pay an average of 11.1 cents per kilowatt-hour for electricity, lower than the state and national averages. Natural gas has helped San Antonio reduce its ozone levels by 20 percent since 2003.”
In addition to providing facts that rebuke a major environmentalist talking point, the report went on to highlight many other benefits the oil and gas industry provides the state, including lower electricity bills, job creation, higher wages, and investments in infrastructure and schools.
