Consumer Group Launches “Open the Gulf” Campaign to Fight High Energy Prices, Inflation
CEA launched the “Open the Gulf” campaign on Thursday to help counter surging prices at the pump and rampant inflation by focusing attention on the current ban on new federal oil and gas leases in the Gulf of Mexico and other policies that restrict access to U.S. energy.
“With American families struggling with the highest prices at the pump in seven years, inflation at a 40-year high and conflict in Ukraine sending oil prices over $100 a barrel, the solution for a cleaner environment and lower energy prices is in America’s possession,” CEA President David Holt said.
“The social cost of doing nothing about America’s energy crisis will be inflicting more economic harm on American families, parents and small businesses, especially those who can least afford to spend another cent amid higher prices for everything,” Holt said.
