Who Wants To Keep Gas Prices High?

By May 11, 2006Energy

If you ever wondered who wants to keep gas prices high, well here’s a good list to start with. We linked yesterday to the full House Appropriations Committee roster, which voted 37-25 to lift the current federal moratorium on tapping our own resources.

Here’s a link to the list of 25 who voted to keep the moratorium in place, and to thus keep gas prices high for everyone. Manufacturers consume a third of it, pay the highest prices in the world.

We should note that this is an unofficial tally, compiled by someone who was close to the action. If we made an error, we will be happy to correct it at once. You can use this Committee list to drop them a note.

Maybe you want to send them a copy of this chart, which shows the escalating gap between supply and demand.
