Resistbot Petition: POTUS use the Defense Production Act to stop oil and gas price gouging!
An open letter to the President

POTUS use the Defense Production Act to stop oil and gas price gouging!

311 so far! Let’s get to 500 signers!

Americans are united in supporting Ukraine’s fight against Putin’s invasion, and I applaud your bold action in getting our allies to join the US in releasing 60 million barrels from strategic petroleum reserves. Unfortunately, in spite of your direct appeals to oil company executives to help the world curb Putin’s aggression, oil prices at the pump continue to rise.  It’s time to use your authority under the Defense Production Act to issue executive orders to address this crisis: Use the DPA to “combat and prohibit hoarding and price gouging with respect to those [oil and gas] resources” as the Trump administration did regarding PPE during the pandemic, and Use the DPA to increase production of renewable energy, convert all federal vehicles to electric power, and steer the nation's economy away from dependence on fossil fuels. We also ask you to make additional releases from the strategic oil reserve to counter shortage-caused price spikes as needed. That's the main purpose of the strategic reserve; now is the time to use it. Thanks.
