One More Week To Save American Energy Security
According to AAA, 2012 will “almost certainly” see the highest annual gas price average in our nation’s history. September’s average gas price was $3.83 per gallon, nearly 35 cents higher than prices in 2011.
Rising gas prices mean increasing how much money we give the likes of Saudi Arabia and Venezuela because of our dangerous reliance on foreign oil. Rising gas prices means less money in Americans’ pockets.
But you can help change that. Help us increase support for renewable fuels – like American ethanol, a homegrown, renewable fuel whose production reinforces our rural communities, our national economy and our energy independence.
The U.S. Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS), a proven energy policy that fuels our economy, independence and future, has been vital in promoting the growth of America’s renewable energy industries – from ethanol to biodiesel. Misinformed critics would like to see our innovative progress undone by calling on the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to weaken the RFS.
Use this form to tell the EPA to preserve the RFS. Comments will be accepted until Thursday, Oct. 11, 2012. Over the next week, every time you see those gas prices when filling up, remember that you can make a difference by having your voice heard.
Without the RFS, our economy, environment, security and future would suffer immeasurable losses. Tell the EPA you want to make America’s energy cleaner, cheaper and better.
