Oil and Gas fall out of love with TrumpThe oil and gas industry’s relationship with President Donald Trump is cooling off.

The administration’s 25 percent steel tariff, hostility toward NAFTA and fumbled efforts to lift restrictions on drilling are worrying executives, who have praised the president’s war on regulations but loathe uncertainty and nationalistic trade policies.
