Are you tired of Big Oil having a free pass to jack up our costs?

The Big Oil Corporations who pollute the air we breathe and the water we drink are making record profits at our expense. They are driving the climate crisis, while keeping their price gouging a secret from public scrutiny.

We need a way to hold them accountable.

That’s why we’re coming together to demand that Big Oil corporations be held accountable for price gouging. The Oil Industry Accountability Act1 will force these corporations to open up their books and face big fines for market manipulation. The bill has a public hearing Wednesday morning in the Senate Environment, Energy & Technology Committee and we need to show our support!

Sign your name to the official list legislators read by selecting “pro” in the first box at the link below, and filling in your details (only your name will be publicly visible). Will you add your name?

Gas and electric utilities are already regulated to prevent price gouging, so it’s only right that the oil industry should be subject to the same kind of oversight. The Oil Industry Accountability Act would impose a fine of up to three times the profits gained or losses avoided as a result of illegal price gouging.

Thanks for all that you do,
Rosey and the entire team at Fuse

P.S. Pulling back the curtain on Big Oil profits and holding them accountable will take a lot of work to achieve. Will you chip in $5 now to help us pass these critical progressive reforms?
