5 reasons why President Biden should support New Mexico’s oil and natural gas industry
- New Mexico is the second-largest crude oil-producing state and our industry here produces it cleaner and safer.
- The oil and natural gas industry supports 134,000 jobs in the state.
- Educators, first responders, and public safety are all supported by New Mexico’s economy and our oil and gas industry.
- The oil and natural gas industry is proud to support our children and teachers in New Mexico by providing over $1.4 billion in funding.
- Oil and natural gas production in New Mexico has solidified American energy security, making the U.S. less reliant on foreign countries with unstable governments to fuel our own economy, infrastructure, and public safety.
