Response to Attempts by API and GMA to Limit Consumer Choice
Posted 21 February 2013 in
Fuels America released the following statement today after the American Petroleum Institute (API) and the Grocery Manufacturers Association’s (GMA) announced they would take their attempt to block choices at the pump to the Supreme Court:
While drivers endure record high gas prices and a losing streak at the pump, oil companies Pass Go, Collect Millions and then proceed to ask for a Get out of Jail Free Card.
The national average price of a gallon of gas has increased for 34 consecutive days, landing today at $3.78 per gallon, the highest on record for the calendar day.
Oil alternatives like renewable fuel are the only way to end the oil industry’s monopoly on our fuel supply and lower prices at the pump. To ensure that Americans have choice at the pump, we must protect policies like the Renewable Fuel Standard and the Environmental Protection Agency’s approval of E15, a fuel that was tested for millions of miles before approval and is now in use, successfully, today.
While the oil industry may want to continue to roll the dice on rising fuel costs, Americans deserve better.

Renewable fuel is more important than ever – driving economic growth in communities that need it, improving our nation’s energy security and attracting millions in new technology dollars to invest in America’s future.
