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 reduce the price of oil and provide consumers with fuel choice.
We believe that by creating the conditions necessary to give gasoline competition at the pump, we can end our oil addiction, saving Americans thousands of dollars each year, while strengthening our national security, creating a generation of new jobs, and improving environmental quality.
If we made fuels like natural gas, biofuels, and electricity more widely available to consumers, prices would fall, and less money would flow to OPEC member nations and others that don’t have America’s best interests in mind. 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. 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 asthma, heart disease, and a range of other illnesses. Fuel choice will cut levels of heat-trapping emissions like carbon dioxide that hasten the damage from climate change.
Ending our dependence on oil would improve our national security, our economy, and our environment — and we won’t stop until we achieve that reality.
