Congressman Rodney Frelinghuysen wrote a bill that is being considered in Congress that would increase transparency and accountability in energy markets. The measure would help lower gas prices by preventing market manipulation, speculation, and price distortion. Frelinghuysen supported bipartisan legislation to help reduce gas prices by suspending the filling of the strategic petroleum reserve which is already 97% full. He believes we simply can not tax our way to energy independence. That's why Rodney opposed the Democrats' $18 billion tax increase on businessmen and women.
