"Mr. President, we urge you to embrace the opportunities provided by America's oil and natural gas industry to create jobs, grow the economy and enhance our energy security," Gerard wrote in a letter to Obama. "This can be done without abandoning your commitment to new energy sources. Pitting one energy source against another is a false choice which ignores the fact that we will need it all."
In the letter, Gerard called on Obama to expand domestic oil and natural gas production and to approve the Keystone XL pipeline. He also said he "appreciate[d] your call for an all-of-the-above approach to meet our nation's energy needs."
