PUMP, a new full-length feature film produced by MI member Fuel Freedom Foundation, is set to open in New York and Los Angeles in mid-September, and other select U.S. cities afterward.
The film is described as “an inspiring, eye-opening documentary that tells the story of America’s addiction to oil, from its corporate conspiracy beginnings to its current monopoly today, and explains clearly and simply how we can end it — and finally win choice at the pump.”
PUMP explores how providing consumers with fuel choice, including methanol, will help bring down fuel prices for all fuels, while spurring innovation and driving job growth.
“Half of America makes less than $50,000 a year for their families. When oil prices rise, their pocketbooks are constrained almost instantly,” says John Hofmeister, the former CEO of Shell Oil Co. who’s now one of Fuel Freedom’s board of advisors. “There’s been a monopoly on the fuel system of cars built and sold in this country. It’s time to break that monopoly. It’s time to give Americans choice.”
