GOP gas price spikes as big oil and siding with dictators

MoveOn ads will run during NCAA March Madness on GA, PA, and WI with #PutinPriceHike aerial banners, mobile billboards, and stickers.

MoveOn Political Action March Madness has released a new ad campaign in the major battlefield states, showing how, in the face of rising consumer gas prices, Republicans are on the side of Big Oil and dictators. Big Oil is supporting Republicans because they make record profits and pay huge dividends to shareholders, paid by the family every time they go to the pump. And while Americans are fighting for Putin’s ability to raise prices at the pump, Trump has praised the dictator for being “talented” and “intelligent.”

“For decades, Republicans have helped Big Oil pad their sky-high profits and resisted any attempt to move away from fossil fuels. Now we’re all paying the price at the pump,” he said. Rahna Epting, Executive Director of MoveOn Political Action. “And even as gas prices rise, Republicans are still blocking Democrats from investing in green-energy that will create 8 million jobs. It’s clear that Republicans will not side with Big Oil and dictators regardless of the cost for hard-working families across America.”

The TV commercial will be aired in Georgia, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin during the NCAA Basketball Tournament, one of the highest-rated events of the year. MoveOn will help spread the message by bringing members together, using aerial banners and mobile billboards, and distributing #PutinPriceHike stickers to local communities.
