PUMP is an inspiring, eye-opening documentary that tells the story of America’s addiction to oil, from Standard Oil’s illegal tactics to the monopoly oil companies enjoy today. The film explains clearly and simply how we can end this monopoly — and finally win choice at the pump.

Spread the word about PUMP the Movie

PUMP the Movie is on Facebook and Twitter – and we want to meet your friends. Will you make the introduction? Share some of our content on your page and let your networks know what's at stake.

The fueling station of the future could be operating now if independent fuel retailers like Costco, Walmart, Kroger, Wawa and others installed E85 ethanol pumps and M85 pumps. Ethanol and methanol are not only cheaper to produce, they burn cleaner, which is better for our health and the environment.

There are nearly 20 million flex-fuel vehicles in the United States, with tens of millions more that can be converted run on ethanol, methanol, gasoline or any mixture with (mostly) just a software change! But we need to have access to these fuels so people could benefit from lower prices.

Sign our petition asking the major independent retailers like Costco, Walmart, Kroger and Wawa to install alternative-fuel pumps at their existing stations and give us a choice at the pump.

More than one-third of the nation's fueling stations are independently owned. Independent stations are free to sell any kind of fuel they like, and they'd offer E85 or M85 if there was a demand for them to do so. So let's demand it! Let's stand up for our fuel freedom and take back choice at the pump.

Make your voice heard. Ask for it, and they'll sell it. Sign our petition to demand large Independent fuel retailers to carry E85/M85.
Consumers have the power, and we deserve fuel choice.

Host a screening

PUMP the movie jump-started a national conversation about our dependence on oil. Bring that conversation home by organizing a screening at your college or university, church, nonprofit, chapter, school, library or community center. You can also host a home-viewing party!
