Gas Prices Are Rising Thanks To Big Oil’s Greed & Extreme Weather

The greed of Big Oil CEOs and climate-fueled extreme weather events have led to high gas prices, which will likely continue throughout the summer. If you plan on covering gas prices, the facts speak for themselves: Big Oil CEOs continue to work to protect their bottom line, even if it means price-gouging families in Nevada.

Meanwhile, Donald Trump and MAGA Republicans are wrongly blaming President Biden for high prices, even as oil production is hitting record highsThe GOP refuses to hold the oil and gas industry accountable for its price gouging—maybe because many of them have personally benefited from higher profits. 

At the same time, Nevada families are already dealing with climate impacts, including extreme snow in Northern Nevada, wind storms in Las Vegas, and extreme summer heat and drought on the horizon. While families across the country are watching their energy costs rise due to extreme heat caused by burning fossil fuels, Big Oil continues to turn a blind eye to the implications of the climate disasters they’ve caused.
