The United States is addicted to oil and we’re working with allies and tens of thousands of citizens to intervene. Check out this great new flash video, take action, and please pass it on!

This, in turn, will keep oil prices high. We’ve just released a new Policy Brief with the Jubilee USA Network entitled High Oil Prices: Undermining Debt Cancellation and Fueling a New Crisis? (pdf).
