The American Petroleum Institute (API) has welcomed Senate passage of the US-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA), saying the deal will sustain and grow America’s global energy leadership while benefitting US workers and consumers.

“Congressional approval of USMCA, following completion of the US-China phase one trade deal, represents a significant turning point in American trade policy,” API President and CEO Mike Sommers said. “Free trade plays a critical role in sustaining and growing America’s global energy leadership – leadership that has made the nation more secure, kept household energy costs low and advanced environmental progress. We commend the administration and members of both parties for supporting American workers and energy consumers by bringing USMCA across the finish line.”

Trade with Canada and Mexico supports 12 million US jobs, according to the Business Roundtable, and totalled nearly US$1.3 trillion in 2017. Mexico is the No. 1 market for US exports of gasoline, fuel oil and total refined products. Canada is the No. 1 market for US exports of crude oil and fuel blending components. These exports represent viable markets for US products, spurring more production and economic benefits here at home.
