Today American Fuel & Petrochemical Manufacturers (AFPM) hosted industry leaders for a roundtable discussion of America Next’s energy white paper. The plan, which was co-authored by Congressman Bill Flores and America Next’s Honorary Chairman Governor Bobby Jindal is entitled Organizing Around Abundance: Making America an Energy Superpower. The full plan and executive summary are available at www.americanext.org/policy.
Governor Jindal led the group of executives from BP, Occidental Petroleum, Phillips66, Valero, and the American Petroleum Institute in a review of the plan’s executive summary before taking questions. The discussion largely focused on U.S.’s capacity to cultivate the abundance of energy resources as a means for creating millions of jobs. Additionally, participants began a robust conversation about how to effectively communicate the impact of cheap energy and the ripple effect it has on the economy.
