Independence Day is that special day when we stop to recognize what a wonderful country we live in. The holiday celebrates the adoption of the Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776. That event started the 13 colonies on the road to freedom as a sovereign nation.
We hope you will take a moment and reflect on all the great things America provides and offers. The many freedoms that we never want to take for granted.
Did you know that America also provides the clean and efficient natural gas that fuels our homes and businesses? Every day, we cook, use hot water and fuel our vehicles with this reliable energy. But how often do we take a moment to stop and consider where natural gas comes from?
Over 93% of the natural gas used in America is produced right here in the USA, reducing our dependence on foreign oil. Natural gas is used to generate power, fuel our transportation needs, and serve as a critical part in American manufacturing. Through each of these uses, natural gas is reducing carbon emissions, lowering the cost of energy and creating jobs.
Happy Independence Day from Peoples Gas!
