API President and CEO Jack Gerard released the following statement in response to the results of Tuesday’s election:

“We look forward to working with the new administration on smart energy policies that protect the United States as the global leader in oil and natural gas production, development and refining, as well as in reducing carbon emissions. We are second to no one and we can build on this success by joining together with policies that embrace our nation’s energy renaissance, including increased energy production and infrastructure development, while rejecting policies that could potentially harm job creation or raise costs on American consumers and businesses.”
