Hydraulic fracturing is one of the keys that has unlocked our nation’s energy resurgence in oil and natural gas, making the United States the largest energy producer in the world, creating tens of thousands of good-paying jobs, and lowering energy prices for consumers. (Source)

Right on the money, Speaker Ryan. FRACT. Thanks to fracking, along with other technological breakthroughs in oil and natural gas development such as horizontal drilling, the United States produces more oil and natural gas than any other country in the world. With an abundance of natural resources now available for development through fracking, the industry supports millions of US jobs. Additionally, fracking allowed American families to save about $1,000 at the pump last year.
