AEA Continues American Energy Advocacy Campaign with New Ads in Colorado, Mississippi

Washington, DC – The American Energy Alliance (AEA) today unveiled new radio advertisements in Colorado and Mississippi as part of its continuing American energy advocacy campaign.  AEA president Thomas Pyle issued the following statement:

“Whether they are filling up at the pump, stocking up at the grocery store, or balancing the check book, American families are suffering the effects of skyrocketing energy prices at every turn.  They’re looking towards Washington for relief.  And while some policies are commonsense supply-and-demand solutions to help lower prices, others would actually set us back in the quest for new domestic energy.  That’s why AEA is continuing its American energy advocacy efforts with new ads in Colorado and Mississippi – to advocate for legislative initiatives that lead to real increases in American energy supplies.”

Gas prices are hurting Colorado families.  But, Congressman Mark Udall has voted 34 times against additional energy exploration and production.

Udall said “we can’t drill our way out of this problem,” but now says he supports drilling.

The legislation he now backs would actually make it more difficult to produce our own energy.  It’s called the “Gang of Sixteen” compromise, but the only thing it compromises is our ability to drill for oil on nearly eighty percent of America’s energy rich outer continental shelf.

The legislation Congressman Udall supports will also raise taxes on domestic energy production, cost America 600,000 jobs, and do virtually nothing to decrease our reliance on Middle Eastern oil.

Call Mark Udall at (303) 650-7820. Tell him if he really supports drilling, he should support energy legislation that will result in more American energy, not LESS.

Energy costs are hurting our families. Thankfully Senators Roger Wicker and Thad Cochran are leading the effort to find solutions.

Our Senators helped sponsor legislation that would open up American sources of energy—lessening our dependence on Middle Eastern oil.  And our Senators understand the U.S. has more untapped oil than the entire world has consumed in the last 150 years, and the capability to develop these resources safely and responsibly.

Increasing our own energy production is a step towards lowering gas prices in the present and increasing our energy independence in the future.

Call Senator Wicker at (601) 965-4644 and Senator Cochran at (601) 965-4459.  Tell them to keep fighting for lower energy costs.
