End the Big Oil Billion Dollar Bonanza

To be delivered to President Donald Trump, The United States House of Representatives, and The United States Senate

Petition Statement

Please end the wasteful and environmentally damaging taxpayer subsidies for the oil industry. The more than $10 billion is money Big Oil doesn't need, and it's money we don't have to give.
There are currently 545 signatures. NEW goal - We need 750 signatures!

Petition Background

Subsidizing the oil industry is like giving Bill Gates a free computer (well, maybe more like giving him a few million free computers). The oil industry's profit was over $100 billion last year, making it the most lucrative industry on the planet, and yet U.S. taxpayers continue to give the oil industry money we don't have.

As Congress debates what to cut to avoid a government shutdown, one of the first things it should consider—but isn't considering—are the more than $10 billion in taxpayer subsidies that we give to Big Oil every year.
