WASHINGTON, DC — Ethanol industry advocacy group Growth Energy has launched an advertising campaign called “You’re No Dummy” in an effort to help Americans better understand that the oil industry is trying to stop the growth of clean, green renewable fuels to protect their own bottom lines.

“For far too long Big Oil has run a campaign of misinformation and unsubstantiated attacks against the renewable fuels industry; it is high time consumers get a reality check from Big Oil’s propaganda designed to protect their market share and enable their monopolistic behavior. Oil companies are not willing to give up any of their market share and they will do anything to protect their profits – plain and simple.

“The campaign we have launched today is designed to do one thing – show consumers that the oil industry has attempted to deceive them over and over again and it’s time they stop being treated like puppets by the oil industry. It is time consumers are allowed a choice when they fill up at the pump – a choice that allows them to not only save their own hard-earned money, but also spend their money on an American product that creates American jobs, promotes energy independence and improves our environment.

“We understand we’re the little guy. We know we’re the underdog. It’s David versus Goliath. But the biofuels industry will no longer tolerate misleading information and nor should the American public. While Big Oil may be one of the largest and well-funded industries on the planet – they are not entitled to use their influence to control Congress to maintain unbridled control over the transportation fuels marketplace.

“We are letting consumers know they are being deceived by Big Oil, who is preventing them from a choice and savings at the pump by denying access to renewable fuels. All so they can protect their market share and excessive profits.

“Our message is simple – You’re no dummy. Don’t let the oil industry treat you like one.”

As part of this campaign, these ads will air nationally on major cable news networks such as FOX, CNN, MSNBC and RFD-TV, as well as several local markets.
