Keep Mobile Growing

2018 Annual Meeting Presentations

Keep Mobile Growing is a non-profit alliance honoring the historic and enduring role that the Port of Mobile and its related industries play in strengthening the Mobile-area and state economic prosperity and quality of life. Today, Alabama's only deepwater seaport terminals and associated network of hundreds of large and small businesses generate $21.7 billion in economic value annually and provide jobs for 147,000 Alabamians.

Energy Prices

  • Petroleum storage terminals in the Port of Mobile provide feedstocks for our state and local refineries and manufacturers; provide fuel for cars, trucks, ships, tugboats and offshore service vessels throughout our region; and provide petroleum products for asphalt production to pave local roadways. Close proximity to petroleum storage facilities helps to keep local energy prices in check. The contention that petroleum feedstocks only pass through our Port for other markets is simply untrue.
