For years, Frank has recognized the need for a comprehensive energy plan that involves both conservation and alternative energy solutions so that we can begin to wean ourselves off foreign oil and reverse global warming. Last year, Frank helped lead efforts to raise fuel efficiency standards on American vehicles for the first time in 32 years. He also supported legislation to repeal billions of dollars in taxpayer subsidies to Big Oil companies so that we could instead invest those funds in clean, alternative fuels and renewable energy. In an effort to help bring down record high gas prices, Frank supported bills pulling oil out of the government's reserves, cracking down on price gouging, and holding OPEC accountable for price fixing.
