In Washington, ethanol industry advocacy group Growth Energy has launched an advertising campaign called “You’re No Dummy” in an effort to help Americans better understand that the oil industry is trying to stop the growth of clean, green renewable fuels to protect their own bottom lines.
“For far too long Big Oil has run a campaign of misinformation and unsubstantiated attacks against the renewable fuels industry,” said Growth Energy spokesman Michal Frolich. “It is high time consumers get a reality check from Big Oil’s propaganda designed to protect their market share and enable their monopolistic behavior. Oil companies are not willing to give up any of their market share and they will do anything to protect their profits – plain and simple.
“The campaign we have launched today is designed to do one thing – show consumers that the oil industry has attempted to deceive them over and over again and it’s time they stop being treated like puppets by the oil industry. We understand we’re the little guy. We know we’re the underdog. It’s David versus Goliath. Our message is simple – You’re no dummy. Don’t let the oil industry treat you like one.”
