we've got signatures, help us get to 10,000 by January 20, 2009
The Bush/Cheney administration continues to be a one-trick pony for Big Oil, proposing more of the same disastrous drilling plans that further benefit oil speculators and the oil industry – at the expense of our coasts and the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge.
Ultimately, America needs long-term solutions focused on renewable energy and better fuel efficiency -- not more drilling. But the oil markets have weak oversight and accountability, which allows wealthy investors from around the world to drive up the price we pay for gas by buying up large amounts of oil and selling it back to each other over and over again.
In the short-term, reining in oil speculators could make a real difference in the cost of gas – and save our natural resources for our planet's future.
Please sign the petition today urging President Bush to rein in oil speculation and give Americans better alternative energy choices to reduce energy costs across the board.
