What happens in the oil and natural gas industry echoes throughout the economy. That’s because the industry is connected to a large variety of industries that use oil and natural gas products either directly or indirectly. New taxes could harm workers and industries throughout the economy. The oil and natural gas industry is working to diminish the downsizing, cancellation of projects and reducing its workforce that may be required by the drop in crude oil and natural gas prices. More taxes would block those efforts and could result in the loss of thousands of industry related jobs every year.

Copper is a ductile metal, with very high thermal and electrical conductivity. Pure copper is rather soft and malleable, and a freshly exposed surface has a pinkish or peachy color. It is used as a thermal conductor, an electrical conductor, a building material, and a constituent of various metal alloys.

Copper is easily stretched, molded, and shaped; is resistant to corrosion; and conducts heat and electricity efficiently. As a result, copper was important to early humans and continues to be a material of choice for a variety of domestic, industrial, and high-technology applications today.

Copper metal and alloys have been used for thousands of years. In the Roman era, copper was principally mined on Cyprus, hence the origin of the name of the metal as Cyprium, "metal of Cyprus", later shortened to Cuprum.
