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 
lowering prices.

*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.
