There are more than 76 million residential, commercial and industrial natural gas customers in the U.S., of which 95 percent — more than 72 million customers — receive their gas from AGA members. Today, natural gas meets more than thirty percent of the United States' energy needs.

AGA’s Governmental Affairs & Public Policy Team works with industry stakeholders and AGA members to shape the clean energy future. The Director helps to develop policy for Hydrogen, RNG, and Energy Efficiency and will lead our efforts on The Hill. The Director is a lobbyist, public and coalition liaison for AGA, and is responsible for several of AGA's federal affairs programs and goals.
