If we're going to argue that oil is too heavily regulated, we should certainly be scrutinizing what that $100m+ lobbying effort is doing to artificially influence the market.
I see. It sounds like you really don't have any actual facts to show this attempt to kill energy alternatives. GM killed the EV1, not "big oil."

What misinformation do you think "big oil" has lied about?
