Invest in a Clean Energy Future by Ending Fossil Fuels Subsidies | The White House

Earlier this month, President Obama called on Congress to repeal the $4 billion annual subsidies we give to oil companies, and they are scheduled to vote on doing so today. Investing in an all-of-the-above energy strategy requires the putting the right incentives in place.
