Join a statewide day of distributed action to support the California bill that would put a cap on Big Oil’s windfall profits– and to shift the narrative by pointing to the real reason for high gas prices: the greed of oil profiteers.
Last Chance Alliance will hold actions all day at big brand-name gas stations (Chevron, Exxon, Arco, Valero, Shell etc.), refineries, and fossil fuel lobbyist headquarters, in Sacramento, San Luis Obispo, Fresno, Bakersfield, Santa Barbara, LA/Long Beach, San Diego, and the Bay Area.
The legislature will consider the measure, proposed by Governor Newsom, in its special session starting December 5.
Fossil fuel companies are using the war in Ukraine as an excuse to jack up gasoline prices and bring in record profits everywhere. But Californians are getting ripped off at an even higher rate:
* Big Oil (the five oil refiners that make 97% of California’s gasoline) make 30% higher profits in California than in the rest of the country.
* Second quarter 2022 profits reported by the refiners for the Western region were three to ten times higher than they were the same quarter of 2021.
