U.S. consumers have a significant interest in the development of all types of energy production in order to increase competition among industries, ensure lower costs and increase availability.
The US Consumer Coalition's Fair Energy Initiative supports expanded consumer choice for energy products. Excessive regulation, restrictions on the development of new sources of energy, and political activism adversely affect American consumers by driving up energy prices, stifling innovation, and restricting research and development in the energy industry that can lead to a healthier environment.
A Fair Energy policy will strengthen our national security, lower energy prices for all Americans, and stimulate a robust economy. America’s consumers deserve a Fair Energy policy that embraces a competitive, diversified market for energy production and distribution.
