Diesel Powers U.S. Jobs & Manufacturing . . .

WASHINGTON, July 19, 2017 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Consider the following about the domestic manufacture of diesel technology and the economic benefits generated by diesel technology:

    --  Over 740,000 diesel engines were manufactured in facilities in 14
        states, in 2016. These engines power everything from pickup trucks to
        large marine workboats and locomotives.
    --  $455 billion in economic wealth was generated in the U.S. production of
        diesel technology, encompassing engines, components, emission control
        technologies and clean diesel fuel (2009).
    --  Half of all economic sectors in the U.S. are reliant on diesel
        technology to move people and goods and perform work.
    --  The manufacture of U.S. made diesel technology supports 1.25 million
        jobs while wages in the diesel technology producing sector pay 60%
        higher than the national average.
    --  95% of heavy-duty commercial trucks on U.S. roads are manufactured in
        the U.S. Thirty percent of these trucks are 2011 and newer models.
    --  Diesel technology is an export powerhouse, with $46 billion of U.S. made
        technology reaching markets overseas.
    --  The U.S. Energy Information Agency predicts that, thanks to new found
        oil and gas reserves, the U.S. will be a net energy exporter in the
        coming years. Expanding production and exports of oil and gas products,
        including ULSD, is expected to grow employment in the sector to 1.3
        million jobs, according to the American Petroleum Institute.

    --  Looking at just the construction equipment industry, the Association of
        Equipment Manufacturers recently concluded that the production of
        construction equipment will offer many Americans a well-paying job and
        benefit communities across the country: 1.3 million jobs and $158
        billion in economic value. In fact, the average wage in the industry
        exceeds the national average paying workers about $78,000 per year.
