Would you like to know why it is impossible to buy motor fuels that do not
contain gasoline or diesel fuel?

   ISSUE EIGHTEEN: Oil Politics in U.S.

 


  <http://www.ipsnews.net/new_focus/subsidies/newsletter/banner.jpg> 



Welcome to the monthly newsletter for journalists about the impact of
subsidies, produced in partnership by  <http://www.ipsnews.net> IPS - Inter
Press Service and  <http://www.globalsubsidies.org> GSI - Global Subsidies
Initiative.




THIS MONTH'S FOCUS: 
Subsidies and Big Oil 


The United States is a great place to be in the oil business. Energy
analysts report that the U.S. government charges some of the lowest
royalties and receives the least amount of taxes from oil and gas companies
to extract a limited resource from public lands.



ABOUT THIS NEWSLETTER 


Subsidies — transfers of public money to private interests— are so common
that for the most part they go unnoticed; they can also be arcane and
complex, posing tremendous challenges for journalists. Yet, many experts
believe that subsidies are one of the most critical factors in determining
the sustainability of a government’s economic, social and environmental
policies. By conservative estimates, over US$1 trillion is spent annually on
government subsidies worldwide. That money has far reaching effects, going
well beyond the stated policy goals used to justify the subsidy itself. This
monthly IPS-GSI Subsidy E-newsletter is designed to help journalists
identify ways in which subsidies crucially affect efforts to achieve a more
sustainable future.

Great Place for the Oil Business
By Stephen Leahy*
Why do U.S. oil companies -- some of the most profitable corporations on the
planet -- receive 20 to 40 billion dollars a year in subsidies from the U.S.
government? …

SUBSIDIES STORIES FROM IPS - RECENT ARTICLES

 <http://www.ipsnews.net/news.asp?idnews=45175> VENEZUELA: The Cost of the
World’s Cheapest Gasoline
By Humberto Márquez 
CARACAS (IPS) - The world’s most inexpensive gasoline is sold in Venezuela,
through a longstanding subsidy programme that benefits car owners while
depriving the oil industry of a large source of funds for reinvesting.
