The US experience shows how affordable gas can ignite manufacturing
We are the world’s largest gas exporter. Yet, we’re denying ourselves the opportunity to use this gas at home to reduce the cost of energy, create jobs, value-add to products, and fast-track our economic recovery.
We have taken our eyes off the ball and allowed the creation of a broken gas market that is punishing Australian manufacturers and putting our gas security and sovereign economic capacity at risk. It’s no wonder the ACCC is looking closely into the operation of the gas market.
Australian manufacturers simply pay too much for gas. With the right-priced gas, we and our customers can compete with the world, deliver economic wealth and create thousands of highly skilled, well-paid jobs. Without competitively priced gas, Australian industries suffer, jobs disappear and our reliance on imports grows.
There needs to be a change. There needs to be a circuit breaker before it’s too late. Join our Campaign to make gas more accessible, more affordable and more secure for all Australians, as a national priority.
