Fuel Freedom Webinar This Thursday

From the good folks at Fuel Freedom:

Factivist: an evidence-based activist.

According to the legendary rock star-turned philanthropist, Bono, the marriage of transparency and factivism has been the driving force in helping to solve the world’s most serious problems.

At Fuel Freedom we aim to do just that — solve the world’s oil problem through transparency and facts. We vow to continue to arm you with facts through our ongoing webinar series.

In our next webinar on August 15, 2013 at 2 p.m. EDT, Fuel Freedom co-founder Eyal Aronoff will provide insights on “Oil Prices, Oil Futures and Speculation.” He’ll explain how oil prices, rather than being set by free market principles, are actually set by a few key players. After detailing the intricacies of market manipulation, he’ll address how diversifying the fuel market could create true choice and competition that would end this injustice.

Every month, Eyal will host a webinar focusing on a different relevant and timely topic to help you continue to be a part of the movement for lower fuel prices. Other webinars in the series will feature distinguished guests that are experts on issues such as national security, oil and the economy, the promise of natural gas as a transportation fuel and so on — all with the goal of saving Americans money at the pump. 


More about the webinar: 

The ongoing debate surrounding the cause of high oil prices is guided by the belief that prices are set by the free market. In reality, the lack of competition in the fuel market allows a few key players to determine prices—not the “free market.” While many believe that there is nothing that can be done about this, Fuel Freedom Foundation is working to diversify the fuel market, encourage fuel competition and provide choice at the pump.

Join Fuel Freedom Foundation co-founder, Eyal Aronoff, in a discussion of the fuel market, and learn:

  • Who determines the price of oil and gas
  • How is the price of oil determined
  • Who is “the market” and what does that actually mean
  • Market manipulation
  • Cases in history where there were divergences
  • How oil is the new gold
  • The Saudis are the central bank
  • What other forces are at play
