Exxon Mobil reported its highest earnings ever this past quarter (surpassing its previous record set just three months earlier), while Shell and Chevron reported their second-highest quarterly profit ever.
But since then, oil company profits have continued to skyrocket while regular Americans suffer.
You warned that your team will work with Congress to look at options available including paying a higher tax on their excess profits.
But the time for warnings is over, we need action. We know that Big Oil will continue to maximize profits no matter the cost – it’s what they’ve done for decades.
We're calling on you to support a windfall tax on Big Oil now. Please hold Big Oil accountable for high gas prices and put that money back in the pockets of Americans and into expanding renewable energy.
