You’ve Seen Mitt Romney and Republican’s Supporter, American Petroleum Institute’s False Commercials, What You don’t See is API Helped Killed Past Bills on Price Gouging and Continues to Lobby against Consumer Protection

You have seen the (API) American Petroleum Institute’s commercials regularly and they are selling you on everything from oil fracturing to the Keystone XL pipeline, and that they don’t need the EPA regulation, etc, etc. They spends millions on commercials and millions telling the public they are their to help you when the fact is all they are selling is some song and dance. It shouldn’t come as a surprise that the American Petroleum Institute is supporting Romney for President. Who else besides Republicans in Congress than a Republican running for office would support the Institutes wishes.

CEO and President of the American Petroleum Institute, Jack Gerad is a backer of Mitt Romney.

American Petroleum Institute -is the largest U.S. trade association for oil and natural gas industry. It represents 400 corporations involved in petroleum.

API are telling you all these things are done on your behalf deregulation, the Keystone Pipeline, fracturing, etc., etc., etc. they are lobbying against consumer protection.

As you see here looking back at a few years, API has been busy not telling you the truth.
