Climate Power Applauds House Democrats for Holding Greedy Oil and Gas Executives Accountable

American’s pain at the pump is moving Democrats to act

Washington, D.C. –  Today, House democrats voted on a bill to hold corporations accountable for price gouging as American households struggle to pay for gas and energy bills. Climate Power’s Executive Director, Lori Lodes, issued the following response:

“Filling a gas tank and paying an energy bill are draining families’ household budgets. Meanwhile, oil and gas CEO’s are raking in billions in profits, enriching shareholders, and doing little to cut costs for working Americans. House Democrats are taking action to reduce gas prices and hold these greedy corporate leaders accountable while Republicans voted to allow these companies to continue to take advantage of the war in Ukraine to line their own pockets at the expense of consumers everywhere. It’s time for this obscene behavior and war profiteering to come to an end.”
