Why this petition matters

Started by Andrew Miller

We need to stop supporting dictatorial governments like Russian, Iran, and Venezuela by buying their oil when we can be oil independent. We can continue to work toward greener energy in the long term, however we are not yet able to meet our energy needs in this way and are using a lot of imported oil at premium prices. This is causing gas prices to be so high that some Americans are having to decide between clothing their kids and buying food or putting gas in their car to get to work. It does not have to be this way when we have the ability to produce the oil we need in a more environmentally friendly manner than the countries we are buying it from. We can produce our own oil while simultaneously working toward greener energy and being more environmentally conscious than we currently are by purchasing oil from overseas. Signing this petition shows you demand that the United States Government reduce the restrictions on the drilling of, and production of, oil in Alaska, Texas, North Dakota, California, and anywhere else on U.S. soil and promote oil independence through means like the Keystone pipeline. Stop making us slaves to other countries' oil when we can be independent and produce it ourselves. Let's keep the United States independent and focus on helping our citizens, not overseas billionaire dictators.
