American Petroleum Institute President and CEO Jack Gerard took time to answer some questions for SmartBrief. The oil and natural gas industry worked throughout the year to ensure that leaders kept U.S. energy needs in mind, he said. "Across the country, we saw elected officials of both parties stand with us to highlight the job creation, economic grown, energy production and government revenue potential of the oil and natural gas industry. In addition, the White House began to demonstrate a greater understanding of our priority issues, and we were able to initiate a new dialogue with the administration on some of those issues," Gerard said.
