Sign the Petition - Do NOT Export Our Oil

As with every other industry, oil companies, with the help of their crony politicians, are trying to end the ban on oil exports even though we continue to import foreign oil. Following the lead of other industries in our union, this allows companies to move our jobs overseas, to third world countries where they can exploit workers, operate with little to no environmental restrictions, to further decimate the U.S. economy so a very few can get richer. Offshoring oil production takes away oil security, putting us at the mercy of other countries.

You can help let our legislators know we oppose this move. Sign the petition.

For further information on the detrimental effects of this move, check out this article.
