Letter: Cantwell's effort applauded

Published:

 

Hurray for Sen. Maria Cantwell, D-Wash. I'm glad to see someone is taking the initiative to investigate why we are subjected to paying outrageous prices for gasoline.

The oil industry believes it can get away with anything because of its huge contributions to political campaigns.

It's time we federalize the oil industry. It has worked for Mexico and China. It can work for us also to keep the oil industry in line.
