 Washington, D.C. -- Representative Edward J. Markey (D-MA), a senior member of the House Energy and Commerce Committee, joined House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), Congressman Rahm Emanuel (D-Ill) and Senator Chuck Schumer (D-NY) today at the Congressional Exxon gas station to discuss skyrocketing gasoline costs and the demand for a shift in economic leadership. Pointing to the Bush Administration’s failing energy policies, Rep. Markey argued that instead of increasing the profits of Oil executives, practical energy prices and alternatives need to be presented to the American people.
