PPA monitors and fights for the interests of the liquid fuel industry every day. There is a tsunami of electrification proposals coming upon us. WE CANNOT WIN without financial support of our advocacy efforts. We are specifically asking members to make personal contributions to our POMPAC Fund (first preference) as well as corporate contributions to our Energy Defense Fund (second preference). Thank you to members who have made contributions on an annual basis. We would again ask you to consider a contribution in 2023. If you haven’t contributed in the past, then NOW is the time to do so.
