ENERGY INDEPENDENCE

California-produced oil promotes energy independence, which means a secure, affordable supply of energy for our cars, businesses and homes. Importing oil leaves us dependent on foreign countries for our energy, putting our military personnel and loved ones in harm's way and subjecting us to price hikes for oil produced without California’s tough environmental standards.


Experts say California has enough reserves to produce virtually 100% of the oil we use. By tapping our state’s energy resources,
California can help the U.S. become independent from foreign oil, making our country safer and energy prices more affordable for millions.

What does becoming energy independent mean for California?

  • Keeping jobs and tax benefits here rather than exporting them to other states and foreign countries

  • Producing oil under the nation’s strictest environmental standards – benefitting California and the rest of the world

  • Eliminating dependence on foreign oil from countries such as Saudi Arabia and Iraq

  • Keeping our troops and loved ones here rather than overseas and in harm's way for the purpose of protecting our foreign oil interests
