Who We Are
The foundation is comprised of entrepreneurs and experts in energy, business, national security, domestic policy and the environment. We represent a diverse range of backgrounds, experience and political ideologies, but we came together to form this nonprofit because of our shared belief that it’s imperative to lower the price of oil over the next decade.
We believe that by creating the conditions necessary to give gasoline competition at the pump, we can reduce the cost of transportation fuel by $300 billion a year in the United States within the next 10 years.
In practical terms, this means that drivers will save about $1 a gallon every time they fill up. This will add about $2,500 to the pockets of the average American family each year.
If we made fuels like ethanol, methanol, natural gas and biofuels more widely available to consumers, prices would fall and less money would flow to other nations that export their oil. We would have less need to send our sons and daughters to faraway places to secure the supply and transport of oil.
Because the natural resources needed to produce many of these replacement fuels are widely available in the United States, millions of new jobs would be created as the distribution network for these fuels is built up. These are jobs that can’t be outsourced. Producing more fuel at home would also strengthen the overall U.S. economy and help reduce our vulnerability to spikes in worldwide prices.
Clearing a path for cleaner-burning fuels to compete on an even footing with gasoline will also reduce air pollution that causes lung and heart disease. Fuel choice will cut levels of emissions like carbon dioxide that trap heat in the atmosphere and harm the environment.
