Demand to Know Why Your Energy Costs Are So High

Public Citizen is defending consumers from outrageous gas prices. On February 1, Tyson Slocum, Director of Public Citizen’s Energy Program, testified before the Senate Committee on the Judiciary. He told the Committee that Congress needs to take quick and and decisive action to protect consumers from future pricing abuse by:
  • Implementing a windfall profits tax and close loopholes allowing oil companies to escape paying adequate royalties
  • Launching an immediate investigation, including the use of subpoena, into uncompetitive practices by oil companies;
  • Strengthening anti-trust laws by empowering the Federal Trade Commission to crack down on unilateral withholding of supplies and other non-collusive anti-competitive actions by oil companies;
  • Re-regulateing energy trading exchanges to restore transparency; and
  • Improving fuel economy standards to reduce demand.
