Throughout the election, Romney has campaigned specifically on prioritizing oil above other forms of energy, openly consulting with oil executives and donors on his energy policy.

Romney said "openness to ending certain subsidies for the oil and gas industry"

Romney said "this $2.8 billion goes largely to small companies, to drilling operators and so forth." I heard that also own partially or wholly by big oil companies. They just separate/ divided company into small pieces operate by friends or partners. Example Harliburton use small companies name in some countries and USA states to drill oils but managed and operated by closed friends.

Still depended on fossil fuel and wanted continue to polluted American water, land and air. Why not use pull away from fossil fuel to cleaner energy.

You can't trust Romney on ANYTHING; the man is a sociopath.

Any candidate that doesn't have a plan for getting this nation off fossil fuels within the next ten years might as well be Jim Jones trying to make us drink kool-aid. Don't fall for the lies. We have to get off oil and other fossil fuels NOW.

He also said he'd open up Alaska and approve the Keystone Pipeline - if he's elected, we'll have oil wells and fracking all over the country. At some point, we HAVE to have alternative energy - why not start now?

As Laura and Doris said, you can't trust him on anything at all.

I just hope the truth gets out to voting Americans. These subsidies are ridiculous when this money could be used to improve our broken infrastructure, or education, and to create some jobs. It's my strong belief that oil speculation needs to be addressed as well. This is artificially propping up the price of a barrel of oil, continuing to make the wealthiest even wealthier while Americans are losing jobs and homes. Disgraceful!

The majority of Americans want to end the tax breaks, but they don't want to pay European prices for the gas either. Want a major impact quickly, charge all vehicles at the same rate and see what vehicles the average person buys.

Humankind has not woven the web of life.
We are but one thread within it.
Whatever we do to the web, we do to ourselves.
All things are bound together.
All things connect.
