Subject: Sign the petition: Tell Congress to overturn our ban on crude oil exports
I'm emailing you today to ask you to consider signing a petition to lift the crude oil export ban. Our country can export gasoline, heating oil and diesel fuel, but – for 39 years -- we have not been permitted to export our crude oil.
That policy was made during the Ford administration, when US oil production was slowing, and we were reeling from the effects of the Arab oil embargo.
It does not make sense today. Last year, for the first time since 1996, the US produced more oil than it imported. Soon, because most US refineries are not equipped for the low-sulfur oil we produce, we'll have more oil than we need.
It only makes sense to export, and doing that would benefit you and I in the form of lower gasoline prices, a stronger US economy and a more stable global oil market that's less dependent on importing from foreign, volatile locations.
Please take the time to learn more about this important issue at canaryusa.com/talkcrude, and add your name to the petition, asking Congress to act now to repeal our country's crude oil export ban.
Crude Oil Export Ban
The US ban on crude oil exports is standing in the way of lower gasoline prices, job creation and a more stable global oil market.
