Dear Progressive Secretary Supporter

Here is another action alert from Progressive Secretary.

Our letter supports actions by the League of Conservation Voters (LCV), Earthjustice, Natural Resources Defense Council, Sierra Club, The Wilderness Society, and others. It asks the Senate to pass H.R. 7688, the “Consumer Fuel Price Gouging Prevention Act.”

We will send your email letter to your Senators. The bill passed in the House on May 19, 2022, 217 - 207 (Roll no. 232).

While oil and gas companies raise prices at the pumps and blame inflation, they’ve announced record profits totaling more than $40 billion in the first quarter of 2022. The House has addressed this situation by voting for the “Consumer Fuel Price Gouging Prevention Act,” H.R. 7688.

This bill gives President Biden the authority to declare an energy emergency, making it unlawful to increase gasoline and home energy fuel prices “excessively” or exploitatively. The bill directs the Federal Trade Commission to punish companies that engage in price gouging.

I strongly urge you to do all you can to protect consumers from price gouging. Vote for H.R. 7688 when it comes to the Senate floor. 

Click here to send this letter or to learn more (you can edit the letter in the next step, if you wish).


Kathie Turner, Executive Director
