S.O.S. NOW Message to the Volunteer State: Help Us Help You Lower Fuel Prices

NASHVILLE, Tenn., Sept. 5 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Stop Oil Speculation NOW coalition announced today that it will be at the Tennessee State Fair on Saturday, September 6 and Sunday, September 7. S.O.S. NOW coalition is conducting a tour of several cities during the next few weeks to listen, talk with and educate our Nation's hardworking families about the toll that unchecked oil speculation is taking on our country.

The oil price bubble is unfairly taxing American families and restricting our nation's economic potential. While it is widely understood that supply-and-demand constraints contribute to price increases, there is another force at work. This force is rampant speculation.

While there is no single, magic bullet that will solve this crisis, S.O.S. Now believes it is critical to attain the proper balance between limiting excessive speculation, increasing the domestic supply of energy in an environmentally sound manner, developing alternative sources, improving efficiency and expanding conservation efforts.

The Stop Oil Speculation Now coalition is a diverse and growing organization of industries, businesses, labor groups and ultimately concerned citizens, united in support of responsible energy policies and prices.
