New Jersey U.S. Senator Fights For Lower Gas Prices

As gas prices continue to climb, a New Jersey U.S. Senator is reintroducing legislation that would keep more fuel produced in the United States right here in America.

“Rising gas prices are hurting working class families, and we deserve to know that oil produced from land belonging to American taxpayers is used to lower prices here at home, not sent to the other side of the world,” says U.S. Senator Bob Menendez.

Numbers released yesterday by the Energy Information Administration show the United States was a net exporter of petroleum products such as gasoline and diesel by a million barrels a day last year.

Senator Menendez’s bill, the American Oil for American Families Act, would ensure that oil or petroleum products that originate within this country are not exported as crude or in refined form. He says that would increase our supply at home, and put downward pressure on prices at the pump.

AAA reports the average national price for a gallon of gasoline is currently $3.78, that’s up 42 cents over the last month.
