    The big five oil companies – BP, Chevron, ConocoPhillips, ExxonMobil and Shell – have made over $100 billion in profits so far in 2011.

    At the same time, these same corporate giants are also receiving billions in taxpayer-funded subsidies each year.

    Tell Congress to stand up to the oil industry by supporting any effort to cut Big Oil’s taxpayer-funded subsidies.

    Dear Activist,

    Enough is enough.

    ExxonMobil reported 3rd quarter profits of over $10 billion. Chevron announced $7.83 billion in profits, and BP earned nearly $5 billion.

    But do you know the worst part? While the Big Oil companies rake in obscene profits, they’re also getting billions of dollars in taxpayer-funded subsidies.

    Over the past decade, the big five oil companies — BP, Chevron, ConocoPhillips, ExxonMobil and Shell — have enjoyed nearly $1 trillion in profits. Let me repeat that. Since 2001, the world’s biggest oil companies have made nearly $1 trillion in profits.

    At the same time, these oil companies benefit from more than $4 billion in special tax breaks and other giveaways every year. Why are we subsidizing one of the most profitable industries? Why does ExxonMobil get a tax break while so many Americans are struggling to make ends meet and get stuck paying higher gas prices?

    The House of Representatives has already cast several votes this year related to ending oil industry subsidies, but each time Big Oil’s congressional backers successfully beat back those efforts. In fact, pro-polluter lawmakers in the House are instead pushing irresponsible drilling that puts our economy and our environment at risk — demonstrating their energy policy is simple: oil above all.

    But as Congress continues to work on the 2012 budget, we need to make sure that oil industry subsidies are on the chopping block.

    Thank you for taking action.
