Memo: Gas Prices Are High Thanks To Big Oil’s Greed

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 Ohio.

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, here in Ohio, families have dealt with 50 tornadoes just since January, more than double the state’s average per year. While Ohioans face the fallout of these  severe storms due to increasingly warm temperatures caused by burning fossil fuels, 

Big Oil continues to turn a blind eye to the implications of the climate disasters they’ve caused.
