Why does gas cost $4 per gallon?
Demand for gasoline in the U.S. has plummeted. Domestic production is
the highest it’s been in eight years. But the cost of gasoline is still
on the rise.
*Something isn’t right here.*
Join Public Citizen on Thursday for a special free webinar on gas prices.
Tyson Slocum, director of Public Citizen’s Energy Program, will:
* explain the cost of gasoline from oil well to pump
* expose how Wall Street artificially drives up gas prices
* identify the ways American consumers can fight back against Big Oil
and financial speculators
* answer your questions about oil dependence
Partisan bickering causes a lot of confusion about what factors
determine the cost of gas and how we can address the volatility of prices.
Our short online seminar is tailored to cut through the competing
rhetoric about gas prices and the various legislative efforts aimed at
*We also will be rolling out Public Citizen’s action plan to hold Wall
Street accountable for oil market manipulation, limit the influence of
financial speculators on gas prices, and promote clean energy technology
and alternative fuels to decrease our dependency on oil.*
Sign up to attend Public Citizen’s webinar on gas prices this Thursday
at 5 p.m. EDT.
Tyson and I appreciate all that you do to support our efforts, and we
look forward to the opportunity to further strengthen our work together.
