Top 10 People That Benefit from a Weakened RFS

For months, the EPA has debated the 2014 Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS), which sets the amount of affordable, cleaner-burning fuels used in America's fuel supply. Now they're on the verge of weakening the RFS, which would harm American farmers, workers and small business owners whose jobs depend on this homegrown industry.
That's because Big Oil has rigged the system.
Big Oil has spent millions of dollars buying Congress, rigging the tax code and misleading the public – all at the expense of American consumers.
Ethanol is affordable. Less in your tank means more money in Big Oil's pockets. When Big Oil wins, we all lose.
Oil companies aren't the only ones that benefit from weakening the RFS.
Like high gas prices? How about cleaning up oil spills? Are you a Koch brother? If not, you could be one of the millions of Americans who benefits from renewable fuels. That's why we're launching a new campaign to expose who benefits from killing the RFS.
The only way we can counter the millions that Big Oil is spending is to set the record straight. Weakening the RFS would hurt our environment — and our wallets.
