Jack Gerard is bullish on the oil and gas industry and its role in the the energy and manufacturing future. He would be, of course, because he is <a href="http://www.api.org/about/president-and-ceo" target="_blank">president and CEO</a> of the American Petroleum Institute, the oil and gas industry’s comprehensive trade group and lobby shop.
Gerard was in Denver this week to touch base with Colorado, one of the top ten oil and gas producing states in the nation, an anchor state of the American west and a top conservation and clean energy state. Colorado is a laboratory of innovation in energy production, use and regulation. It’s also a political swing state. A man like Jack Gerard can’t stay away too long.
