The Powers Family and Natural Gas

The following is a guest post by Cathy Landry, vice president of communications for the Interstate Natural Gas Association of America, a Washington-based trade association that advocates for large-line, large-diameter, cross-state natural gas pipelines. In 2015, INGAA created America’s Energy Link, a social media-based communications program, to educate Americans on the benefits of natural gas and the pipelines that bring that gas to market. You can follow INGAA on Facebook, LinkedIn, and Twitter. Find ways to support pipelines in your area that are under construction by INGAA members at their project’s page.

Did you know that natural gas plays a daily role in all our lives?

Natural gas helps heat our home, cook our food, heat our water, and generates about one-third of the nation’s electricity. It’s also used to make many of the products and goods that we need and enjoy most – like shoes, sporting equipment and pharmaceutical products. Appliances powered by natural gas are more cost effective, reliable and efficient.

According to the U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA), the United States is currently the world’s largest producer of natural gas. In 2015, the natural gas industry added 1.9 million jobs across the economy, including tens of thousands in manufacturing and infrastructure. Unlike other energy sources, 85 percent of all the natural gas consumed domestically is produced here in the United States.

The Powers Family infographic is designed to highlight how natural gas improves our quality of life. The infographic examines the daily touchpoints of the Powers family as they go about their day using products and appliances made from or powered by natural gas.
