Want to do something about high gas prices???
In a recent conference, Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke essentially threw petroleum marketers and consumers “under the bus” of economic recovery. What Bernanke said is that high gasoline, diesel and heating oil prices are unfortunate, but that he is not concerned enough yet to take action to ease prices.
Bernanke is essentially favoring Wall Street over Main Street. While investment bank earnings soar, Bernanke asks consumers to “toughen up” and accept higher fuel and food costs. He sells this as the necessary medicine to cure our weak economy.
We believe a larger audience of consumers and business need to become more vocal in opposing these reckless monetary policies. If the Federal Government keeps printing money and devaluing the dollar, $5 or $6 gas is a real possibility.

WOMA is the only association in Washington State that focuses on all aspects of the petroleum marketing industry and monitors legislative and regulatory issues involving fuel, energy, alcohol, tobacco, transportation, the environment, and the state budget and taxes.
WOMA members account for nearly 80% of all petroleum products sold in Washington State, including nearly 70 million gallons of heating oil to residential and industrial users.
By joining WOMA, you become a part of a team of oil jobbers, distributors, wholesalers, and oil heat dealers that can achieve more together than any single member can accomplish individually.
WOMA encourages a high level of business ethics and provides education, training and an exchange of ideas. Members have access to a variety of publications, conferences and scholarships, and are kept up to date on issues such as the state’s biofuels mandate.
WOMA also lobbies on behalf of petroleum marketers and oil heat dealers with state government agencies and the legislature in Olympia, and stays engaged with state and national associations, including PMAA, WPMA, and POC.
