Fuels America Launches Ad Campaign Defending RFS

Fuels America Launches Ad Campaign Defending RFS

 

The Fuels America Coalition, a group of renewable fuel organizations and supporters launched an ad campaign Monday defending the Renewable Fuels Standard. The campaign targets the Washington DC area where policy makers are considering possible changes or elimination of the RFS.  Renewable Fuels Association President Bob Dinneen says they’re trying to correct misleading information sent out and steps taken by the American Petroleum Institute.

Dinneen says their campaign is reminding Congress that consumers need a choice when it comes to fuel. He also says the RFS  should not be dismantled or tweaked with in any way.

Dinneen says that changing the RFS or repealing it is a vote to keep the oil monopoly in place, is a vote against the environment and consumers and a vote that ultimately makes the country less secure.
