Oil & Gas Benefits Texas

"All Texans benefit from oil and natural gas tax and royalty revenue, whether they live in an energy-producing area or not. Every year, oil and natural gas companies contribute billions of dollars in taxes and royalties that directly fund our roads, schools, first responders and essential public services.

Using tax revenue from the oil and natural gas industry, Texas has been able to invest billions of dollars in infrastructure like water projects and our State Highway Fund, as well as local investments in school construction. Texans see the impact of these investments every day."

- Todd Staples, President of Texas Oil & Gas Association
