Take a Stand for Lower Gas Prices
The Obama Administration is proposing to drastically reduce the amount of renewable fuel blended into the nation’s gas supply next year. This draft plan would raise gas prices and undermine the growing American industry that is helping to move us off oil.
Reducing the amount of renewable fuel in our gas means replacing it with oil. Since renewable fuel is cheaper than petroleum, this proposal would cost American drivers more than $7 billion in higher gas prices. It would also give a huge handout to the oil companies, more than $10 billion in new profits.
President Obama and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) need to know that you oppose plans to use less clean fuel. Please leave a comment below to make your voice heard, and we will send them to the EPA. America can't afford to spend more at the pump.
To help you write your comment, we've shared some suggested language you can use, or you can write in some of your own messaging in support of the Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS):
- Recent analyses have shown that cutting renewable fuel use will hand over $10 billion to the oil companies – that’s money out of everyday Americans pockets.
- If this proposal goes through, American jobs are at risk, and we will lose the chance to attract new companies and investments to the U.S.
- It’s not just gas prices and jobs that have me worried. Oil is bad for the environment. Using more oil – and less clean renewable fuel – will increase pollution.
- Help keep access to cleaner, cheaper fuel that is good for our economy and our environment.
