Petition to

Gas Rebates for Wisconsin Residents

As I watch the price of gas go up daily, I can't help but observe how this is affecting so many people in my local city and around my county.  People are having to decide on either getting gas or getting the food they need for their families.  The Federal Government is all talk but no show on any attempt to resolve the sky rocketing costs of gas.  The current administration and their agenda to go green, is not doing enough to make the much-needed changes that middle class families need now.  I understand that the Ukraine war has affected our ability to purchase gas from Russia, but if we stayed the course of being energy independent, we wouldn't have to deal with purchasing gas from Russia and supporting a communistic country with a dictator as a leader.  If the Federal Government thinks that rising the cost of gas will push people to buy electric cars, they have another thing coming.  No one is going to go out and spend 75K and over to purchase a new electric car especially when the electric costs are also getting higher because of inflation.   Where does this end? So this petition is to encourage our state officials to send out a gas rebate to all Wisconsin residents of $100 per month, until the costs get back to 2.93, which was the average cost of regular gas a year ago for the state of Wisconsin.   My goal is to get 100,000 signatures so that we can push our local state officials to adopt this new change.  See additional data for gas prices in Wisconsin below: Current Avg.   Regular: $4.893  Mid-Grade: $5.202  Premium: $5.623  Diesel: 5.305 Year Ago Avg. Regular: $2.893  Mid-Grade: $3.222  Premium: $3.599  Diesel: $3.086

Congress: Tesla Superchargers and Plugs should be the U​.​S. standard for EVs

While electric vehicle technology has rapidly advanced, the charging standard in the U.S. has not. CCS and SAE J1772, the US’s common standards, are clunky, cumbersome, and expensive. A recent study showed Tesla Superchargers provide the best EV charging experience. The connector is easier to use, the port is small, convenient, and universal for AC or DC Fast Charging.   Imagine if every electric vehicle could utilize Tesla’s lightweight, incredibly efficient, elegant connector?   As the founders of Aptera, EV enthusiasts, and vehicle charging experts, we believe the U.S. government should adopt Tesla’s Supercharger Technology as the standard for ALL EV charging in the U.S.  A Texas program recently disclosed that installing a Supercharger station costs just one-fifth of other networks.  Given the significant amount of funding our government will put into charging infrastructure, we believe that fast charging stations across the U.S. should be based on Tesla’s standards.  If our country began to support Tesla’s charging standards now, we could begin expanding our infrastructure at a much reduced cost, saving $4 billion dollars on projected charging infrastructure spending through 2027. Imagine what other EV programs we could support with that $4 billion in savings!  If you agree that Tesla’s charging standards are good for EVs and the U.S., please help. Sign this petition and encourage decision-makers in Congress to adopt Tesla’s charging standards and connectors as the U.S. industry standard. With Washington D.C.'s goal for 50% of car sales to be electric by 2030, our country needs to adopt Tesla Supercharger and Plug standards before another dollar is wasted on inferior technology.

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. Learn more about the bill and its progress here.
