The Texas Oil and Gas Association recently launched a petition drive against any proposed ban of gas stoves.
This is what its alert stated:
“The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission is considering a ban on natural gas stoves, a decision that would affect a wide range of Americans as over 40% of households use natural gas stoves. The decision would also harm small businesses and restaurants like Chela’s Tacos in San Antonio, who could not make their classic dishes without a natural gas stove.
Experts at the Association of Home Appliance Manufacturers and the American Gas Association have spoken out against the ban, saying:
“Ventilation is really where this discussion should be, rather than banning one particular type of technology.”
– Jill Notini, Vice President of the Association of Home Appliance Manufacturers.
“The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission and EPA do not present gas ranges as a significant contributor to adverse air quality or health hazard in their technical or public information literature, guidance, or requirements.”
– Karen Harbert, President of the American Gas Association.
If you agree that natural gas stoves should not be banned, join us in speaking out by signing our petition!
Thanks for standing up for oil and natural gas!”
