A few points about the chart above, which visualizes these trends all too well.

Numerous economists are forecasting another recession, but these trends don’t have to shape our future. We can help reenergize our economy by producing more American-made energy and the good-paying jobs it creates. As this article in USA Today points out, the shale oil industry alone has contributed 1 million of the 2.7 million jobs added in the U.S. since 2002. Remember that the next time liberals look to slow down oil and natural gas production.
