How does shale gas help American manufacturing?

Abundant and affordable supplies of natural gas and its associated liquids, which manufacturers use as a feedstock for the products they make, have helped lower the cost of doing business in the United States, making the U.S. an attractive place for companies to invest.

According to PwC, these lower costs will create more than 1 million additional American  manufacturing jobs by 2025. PwC also reports that these costs could help U.S. manufacturers reduce their natural gas expenses by up to $11.6 billion each year through 2025. That is helping companies make new investments into American industry, from fertilizer plants in Iowa and the Dakotas, to new plastics facilities along the Gulf Coast and new and expanded steel facilities in the Rust Belt.
