    From Think Progress:

    – The senators who voted for Big Oil’s handouts received on average over four times as much career oil cash as those who voted to end them.

    – Overall, Senate Republicans have taken $23.2 million in oil and gas contributions.

    Democrats received $6.66 million.

    Most if not all Senators who support a specific enterprise get big bucks from them. How much do you think the green energy groups donate to Democrats?

    Just one of many reasons that gasoline prices increase. The many millions spent on lobbyists,golden parachutes,BOD's salaries,CEO salaries, millions spent on Climate Change
    MIS-information campaign and the list goes on and on and on.
