Letter to
U.S. House of Representatives
U.S. Senate
I strongly urge you to maintain the Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS) and reject any efforts to waive or alter this policy. As our only successful domestic energy policy in more than 40 years, the RFS has helped improve America’s energy security, revitalized our rural communities and created jobs nationwide, including four hundred thousand jobs in communities throughout the United States.

In addition to the local economic benefits of this policy, the RFS is necessary to ensure Americans have the right to cheaper, cleaner, homegrown renewable fuels. The oil industry’s monopoly on the liquid fuels market has gone on far too long.

A recent Fuels America poll shows our nation’s overwhelming support for renewable fuels:
• 75 percent of Americans want more renewable fuel options at gas stations.
• 73 percent favor the Renewable Fuel Standard.
• 3 in 5 blame the oil industry for high gas prices.

This strong support for the RFS is growing by the day as more and more Americans learn about the value of renewable fuels. Thanks to the RFS, in just a few short years our country has built a growing industry and transformed the fuel market for the better, and there is significant potential for future success.

Let the RFS work as intended. Let it continue to help reduce our dangerous dependence on foreign oil, create sustainable jobs across varied industries nationwide and clean our air. Let it continue to make progress and advances in an industry that was stalled for decades.

I strongly urge you to maintain the RFS.

Thank you for your time and consideration.
