AEA Joins Coalition to Save Our Cars

WASHINGTON DC (09/12/2023) – The American Energy Alliance has proudly joined the Save Our Cars Coalition along with 31 other national or state-based organizations. The coalition will fight to preserve and expand consumer choice in the selection of cars and trucks and ensure that all Americans will continue to benefit from them, as they have for more than a hundred years.

The Biden administration and California Governor Gavin Newsom have launched two different regulatory programs directed at gradually eliminating the sales of gasoline-powered cars and mandating the sale of electric vehicles.

The Save Our Cars Coalition will alert and educate the public to the threats posed by these and other harmful regulatory programs adding more to the price tag of vehicles – which are already at record highs – and eventually eliminating gas-powered cars and trucks altogether.

The coalition launches just as lawmakers in the House of Representatives are expected to vote on a bill that would prevent California from banning gas-powered cars and trucks. The American Energy Alliance will score that important legislation on our American Energy Scorecard.

AEA President Thomas Pyle issued the following statement:

“I am proud to join the Save Our Cars Coalition, which will fight to preserve the ability for all Americans to choose the cars and trucks that best suit their needs.
The Biden administration and the State of California want to ban cars and trucks powered by gasoline and diesel and replace them with electric vehicles. Past regulatory efforts have already had an impact on the price of new cars and trucks – which are at record highs. These regulations will make it even harder for people to buy and enjoy a car or truck by making them even more expensive and by reducing the number and types of automobiles available in the market. This is a feature, not a bug, of these rules.

In a nation as expansive as the United States, cars are not merely vehicles, they are integral to the American way of life. They play a pivotal role in our daily lives, especially in suburban and rural settings. This modern-day Prohibition would outlaw a product and a value – in this case, gasoline-powered cars and trucks that have created personal mobility on an unprecedented scale – that it cannot persuade people to forego themselves.

The simple reality is that this aggressive government assault is intended specifically to make cars and trucks much, much more expensive and therefore available only in much smaller numbers to much wealthier consumers. This is not about the environment; it is about personal freedom and mobility.”
