Peyton's Peek at the Week In Politics
By Paul Peyton of The Leader/Times

Members of New Jersey Citizen Action protested outside gas stations in Cherry Hill and Somerville last Thursday and called on Congress to take pro-consumer action to reduce the nation's dependence on oil.

Citizen Action opposes offshore drilling, seeks to repeal what it calls the "$13 billion in wasteful tax breaks for big oil," and favors enactment of a windfall profit tax of oil company profits and to use that money "to invest in mass transit, clean renewable energy sources, and community needs like health care and education."
