Tell the U​.​S. Senate to Pass the Consumer Fuel Price Gouging Prevention Act

The U.S. House of Representatives passed a bill called the Consumer Fuel Price Gouging Prevention Act in May 2022. Its purpose is to stop the gasoline price gouging currently happening across the country. Lowering gas prices is something that every U.S. person can benefit from. However, it will likely face an uphill battle in the Senate because of how the U.S. Senate seats are currently filled. Working class Americans are already struggling to pay for basic necessities. Please sign this petition to let your U.S. Senator know how important this bill is for working class Americans. You can also search for and contact your U.S. Senator to ask them directly to pass this bill. Bill Summary: Consumer Fuel Price Gouging Prevention Act This bill prohibits any person from selling, during a proclaimed energy emergency, a consumer fuel at a price that (1) is unconscionably excessive, and (2) indicates that the seller is exploiting the emergency to increase prices unreasonably. The President may issue a proclamation of such an emergency that specifies the consumer fuel and geographic area covered and how long the proclamation applies. The bill provides for enforcement of these provisions by the Federal Trade Commission and state attorneys general. Civil penalties collected by the commission through such enforcement must be used to provide assistance under the Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program.
