To: The US President and US Congress from Americans
Concerned about the 2010 Gulf Oil Spill
Gulf Oil Spill Electric Car Credit
With oil prices expected to exceed $100 per barrel and millions of
dollars of catastrophic damage occurring to U.S. coasts, wildlife, and
coastal economies, all due to the 2010 Gulf Coast Oil Spill, it is time
for a new direction for transportation in America.
In response to the Gulf Coast Oil Spill, this petition asks the U.S.
Congress and Senate to introduce legislation and for the President to
sign into law a bill that will do the following:
1) Increase the electric car tax credit for any American made Electric
cars to 70% of the purchase price.
2) Provide a tax credit for consumers equal to the cost of labor to
convert their gas engine vehicle to an electric engine vehicle.
3) To require that all Federal Agencies must use American made Electric
cars for 70% of their vehicle fleets beginning January of 2011 and
This will create instant demand for U.S. made electric cars, which will
put Americans back to work, boost the American economy, reduce the
demand for Oil, and will give the American people a choice to drive an
affordable vehicle that is clean and does not pose a threat to our
coastal economies or our wildlife.
