The American Petroleum institute has outlined important public policy considerations in light of Congress hinting at a shift in energy legislation.

First, API’s Jack Gerard and Rep. Ed Markey had a good conversation at the API/Newsweek panel discussion on Tuesday evening. Here’s a link to the transcript from the event[1].

Second, API’s President Jack Gerard and Devon Energy’s Chairman and CEO Larry Nichols talked with reporters about the White House Jobs Summit. They called the summit a “missed opportunity[2],” adding that the industry could create hundreds of thousands of jobs without requiring a bailout or stimulus money.

API outlined its position on job creation in a news release here[3].

It is too bad the White House often leaves out those businesses that actually create jobs and wealth.
