New Ad: GOP Siding With Big Oil and Dictators as Gas Prices Spike

MoveOn ad campaign will run during NCAA March Madness on cable in GA, PA, & WI along with #PutinPriceHike aerial banners, mobile billboards, and stickers.

MoveOn Political Action has released a new ad campaign during March Madness in key battleground states highlighting how, in the face of rising consumer gas prices, Republicans are siding with Big Oil and dictators. Big Oil is backing Republicans as they make record profits and pay out huge dividends to shareholders, all paid for by families every time they go to the pump. And as Americans struggle to afford a Putin price hike at the pump, Trump praises the dictator for being a “genius” and “savvy.” 

“For decades, Republicans have helped Big Oil pad their sky-high profits and opposed every effort to transition away from fossil fuels. Now we are all paying the price at the pump,” said MoveOn Political Action Executive Director Rahna Epting. “And even as gas prices continue to soar, Republicans are still blocking Democrats’ green-energy investments that would create 8 million jobs. It is clear that Republicans continue to side with Big Oil and dictators no matter the cost to hard-working families across America.”

The TV ad will run on cable in Georgia, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin during the NCAA basketball tournament, one of the highest-rated events of the year. MoveOn will also help spread the message by mobilizing members, using aerial banners and mobile billboards, and distributing #PutinPriceHike stickers in local communities.
